Archive Story


Come join a screening of Ailey followed by a discussion with the director of the film Jamila Wignot, facilitated by Sociology Professor John Fox and Equity Librarian Laura Gamez.

"Alvin Ailey was a trailblazing pioneer who found salvation through dance. AILEY traces the full contours of this brilliant and enigmatic man whose search for the truth in movement resulted in enduring choreography that centers on the Black American experience with grace, strength, and unparalleled beauty. Told through Ailey's own words and featuring evocative archival footage and interviews with those who intimately knew him, director Jamila Wignot weaves together a resonant biography of an elusive visionary."
