Katherine Dunham
b. 6-22-1909; Joliet, IL
d. 5-21-2006; NYC

Katherine Dunham was a noted dancer and choreographer who brought the dance styles of black people of the Caribbean and the United States to the attention of America at large. She attended university in Chicago and majored in anthropology. Doing a year of field work in the West Indies helped give her the insight she needed to develop innovative dance forms expressing Caribbean cultural styles.

Dunham choreographed and performed in a number of stage productions and films during the 1930s and '40s. She also founded the first black dance troupe – the Katherine Dunham Dance Company. But she was most proud of the Perfoming Arts Training Center, which she founded in East St. Louis, Illinois, in 1967 – and where, in her later years, she continued to teach and offer her guidance. Her school was an oasis in the middle of the poverty-stricken city that offered hope and a way out for countless numbers of troubled youth. It is here where her legacy continues, and where many young lives are changed. (based on a no longer available poster published before 2006)

FYI - actress and singer Eartha Kitt began her career in Dunham's company, and Alvin Ailey was one of her students.

Buddy Ebsen, who is most remembered for his role of Jed Clampett in the television program The Beverly Hillbillies, started his show business career as a dancer. He was cast as the Tin Man in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz but had to be replaced because the aluminum powder used as make-up made him very ill.
