Katherine Dunham is one of the greatest dancers and choreographers of this century, one of the greatest african-american artists in our history and, along with Ruth Page, one of the founders of dance in this city. This Friday the native Chicagoan will be making a rare public speech at a conference honoring her work and her legacy. A rare opportunity to hear one of Chicago's greatest daughters speak about her life and work.
