Alvin Ailey
by Andrea Davis Pinkney;  illustrated by Brian Pinkney

This book describes the life, dancing, and choreography of Alvin Ailey, who created his own modern dance company to explore the black experience.

"Moving with the rhythm of repeated lines and strong compositions, the scratchboard and oil pastel illustrations create a vivid sense of dance and capture Ailey's vibrancy. " (Booklist)

"... both informative and inspiring and will make an excellent addition to most collections." (School Library Journal)
