Camille A. Brown is a prolific Black female choreographer reclaiming the cultural narrative of African American identity. Her trailblazing work mixes ancestral stories and pop culture references to examine aspects of black existence that have been revised, appropriated, or silenced. She develops and teaches community-based dance and social justice activities that engage the Black community and Black allies. Most recently, her TED-Ed Talk A Visual History of Social Dance in 25 Moves was chosen as one of the most notable talks of 2016.

Her company, Camille A. Brown & Dancers, will perform at the Modlin Center on Friday, September 27 at 7:30 PM. Tickets and info available at

Hosted by Modlin Center for the Arts in partnership with Boatwright Memorial Library
