By the late 1960s, the company had become a well-known African-American artistic group closely tied to the Civil Rights struggle and the Black Arts movement. In "Dancing Revelations", Thomas DeFrantz chronicles the troupe's journey from small modern dance company to one of the premier institutions of African-American culture. DeFrantz charts the Ailey Theater's rise to national and international renown and contextualizes its progress within the civil rights, women's rights, and gay rights struggles of the late 20th century. In addition, DeFrantz analyses all the major dances in the Aily repertoire, examining the relationship between those works and African-American culture as a whole. As the first book to examine the cultural sources and cultural impact of Ailey's work, "Dancing Revelations" makes an important contribution to modern dance history and criticism as well as African-American studies+-+921536046512564ocn034475365book19960.28Dunning, JenniferAlvin Ailey : a life in danceBiographytheater but sometimes hid his sexuality as if he had never left his conservative family and Southern church.
