Fire Under My Feet: History, Race and Agency in African Diaspora Dance (Book)
Title: Fire Under My Feet: History, Race and Agency in African Diaspora Dance
Editor: Ofosuwa Abiola
Abstract: **Although the Africana Theatre and Dance Collection was not used directly to edit this book, establishing the Collection provided inspiration for exploring other iterations of African diaspora dance. The result was Fire Under My Feet. Abstract: Written documentation and diverse methodologies are buttressed by the experiences of those whose lives are built around the practice of African diaspora dance. Replete with original perspectives, this book makes a significant contribution to dance and African diaspora scholarship simultaneously. Most important, it highlights the work of researchers from Ecuador, India, Puerto Rico, the United States, and the United Kingdom, and it exposes under-researched and omitted voices of the African diaspora dance world of the aforesaid locations and Puerto Rico, Columbia, and Trinidad as well.
