When Langston Dances, Hardback Book

When Langston Dances Hardback

Illustrated by Keith Mallett



A young Black boy dreams of dancing in this exuberant, buoyant picture book celebrating the beauty of dance, and the wonder of Black Boy Joy-perfect for fans of Firebird and Crown!Langston likes basketball okay, but what he loves is to dance-ever since he saw the Alvin Ailey Dance Company perform.

He longs to twirl into a pirouette, whirl into a pique.

He wants to arabesque and attitude, grand battement and grand jete.

When he walks, the whole street is his stage. With his neighborhood cheering him on, will Langston achieve his dream?
