Pearl Primus Born 29/11/19 - Died 29/10/94

She was also a choreographer, dancer and anthropologist. She promoted African dance forms and wanted people to view and understand them as important.

The following quotes were taken from this website-

'modern dance looks to the expressive needs of the individual rather than to European models for its movement techniques'.

'Modern dance is expressionistic, and so any position necessary to create the desired effect is acceptable'

'Blacks were denied entrance to ballet careers so modern dance became the method of dance by which they could shine'
