Misty Copeland is making power moves on stage and screen

On this edition, we profile the principal ballerina at the American Ballet Theatre, Misty Copeland, who is making power moves on stage and on screen with the help of her business partner, Gilda Squire. We talk to both of them about the strategy to refine Ballet as a sport. Then, we look back at Ntzoke Shange, the playwright and poet who helped to shape the black arts movement. Plus, we talk to Nikki Giovanni, who many consider one of the world’s most beloved African Americans poets. And finally, look back at former Essence editor in chief Susan Taylor and her new mission to help young people.
