Diversifying the Narrative: stories from dancers of the line formerly known as the Ebony line and beyond part 1, featuring Jakki Ford
Today’s episode kicks off a 7 part series in which I feature guests that are all People of Color that performed in Hallelujah Hollywood, Jubilee, and/or Hello, Hollywood, Hello between 1973-2016. I begin this journey talking about my own experience with diversity growing up, moving into the world of entertainment in the ballet company and then the Jubilee company, by the year 2000.
I then bring in Jakki Ford to share her thoughts on diversity and the future of this country. She will return next week with a full episode sharing more of her stories from the Ebony line in both Hallelujah Hollywood and Jubilee. Enjoy!
