Philadelphia Inquirer

Brenda Dixon Gottschild, Temple professor emerita of dance, is lauded for her ability to "crystallize the social history and backstage story of [Joan Myers] Brown's journey" in her new book, Joan Myers Brown and the Audacious Hope of the Black Ballerina. It is a Philadelphia story that rivals "Rocky" in blood, sweat, and tears, not to mention fabulous footwork.
