Jack Lyons – Black Girl Linguistic Play

I found it interesting how the dancers, particularly CAB said that they had to go back into their childhood to a time before others told them there was something wrong or different about being black. The way these dancers parsed out a particular identity that they all shared and embodied it through dance was fascinating and really meshed well with what we have been doing in this unit from a kind of post-structural analysis. I am curious if the experience of black girls growing up in today’s world is different in, and if so how is it different?
