  1. While channel surfing I came upon The Alvin Ailey Dance Company on PBS, last weekend. At first I thought it was just going to be current works being performed by the company. Well to my surprise as the show went on the dancers eventually performed Revelations! and it was a real treat. It brought me back to a time when this world was a bit different than it is today. I can recall attending The memorial for Mr. Alvin Ailey at City Center in December of 1989, along with my friend Major Mathews. This was my very first time observing Revelations being performed live. It was an awe inspiring performance and tribute that chronicled a very relevant time in African American history, and it is timeless as I just witnessed it being interpreted and performed by the current generation of dancers that bear the torch & keep Revelations vital and alive! unto to this very day. Mr. Alvin Ailey was way more than a dance choreographer… he was an inspiration to the world and an Artistic Genius.
