Diversifying the Narrative: stories from dancers of the line formerly known as the Ebony line and beyond part 2, featuring Jakki Ford
This is part two of a seven 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. Jakki Ford picks up from last week and shares her thoughts on joy and diversity.
We chat about her introduction to the “Ebony line” in Hallelujah Hollywood, and her feelings about the segregation and integration in later years. Also discussed are hit Broadway shows that are leaning into more diversity and the impact the arts and performers have in this world. Enjoy!
