The Color Book is a two-part dance narrative about colorism from the African American female perspective. The first section is entitled Foreword. It is a three-minute solo performed to a live spoken word artist. The second section, entitled Chapter One, is a six-minute work performed by the ensemble. The Color Book identifies the stereotypes associated with skin color on the black spectrum to celebrate black female life through dance. Upon its completion, The Color Book attempted to reconstruct the image of Black women in dance by understanding their existence and reclaiming their identity.
