Famous ballet dancer Misty Copeland was just promoted to a female principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater, making her the first African-American woman dancer to hold the position in the prestigious company’s seventy-five year history!
“My fears are that it could be another two decades before another black woman is in the position that I hold with an elite ballet company,” the 32-year-old dancer wrote in her memoir “Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina,” about race in ballet. “That if I don’t rise to principal, people will feel I have failed them.”

[Director Pierre Coffin] is both a lover of and a student of the great silent comedians and in the film we see the influence of everybody from Charlie Chaplin to Peter Sellers, and what that amounts to is a film that aspires to entertain audiences and make them laugh.”
