Another first this week: the first time a black woman was chosen to be a principal dancer in the American Ballet Theater.
Wow. Those are some muscles.
Read more about her here: “Misty Copeland Is Promoted to Principal Dancer at American Ballet Theater” and thought-provoking comments like these:
“Funny we’re still talking like this in 2015. Instead of celebrating Ms. Copeland’s amazing personal achievement, we are directed to celebrate the ABT’s promotion of the first African-American female principal.”
“Does everything have to be about race when a Black person is involved? Celebrate PEOPLE and their accomplishments and stop being so divisive!”
