Ballerina Misty Copeland Hosts Book Signing

Posted:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Misty Copeland, the first African-American woman to achieve the role of principal dancer in the American Ballet Theatre, is hosting a book signing in Maryland.
    
The 32-year-old dancer will appear Saturday at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture in Baltimore. She will sign copies of her memoir "Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina" and her children's book "Firebird."
    
Copeland will host a presentation at the museum at 1 p.m. Saturday.
    
In June, Copeland was named the first black woman to be principal dancer of the American Ballet Theatre in New York City.
    
Copeland was born in Kansas City and moved at a young age to California where she first took ballet classes at the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
