The author of The Dancer that Flew reached out to see if I wanted to review her work. I’m loving historical fiction right now, so I accepted. Let’s jump into my honest review.
The Dancer that flew mini review
The Dancer that Flew is set in the 1970’s, the troupe of dancers is her livelihood at the tender age of eighteen. The dancer is talented. The dance manager’s treatment of her is unequal to her counterparts. Despite this form of discrimination, some of this company recruiters believed in the fair skinned dancer’s abilities, believing that she, as a Negro woman, could make a difference for all of the girls in America.
The Dancer that Flew: Keeping Time is probably the shortest story I have read, but it really got the point across. Our unnamed dancer is facing discrimination from her manager. However, she is determined to reach her dreams. Her hard work doesn’t go unnoticed by others around her. Her determination is inspiring.
