A Ballerina's Tale with Misty Copeland

Oct 12, 2015

Iconic ballerina Misty Copeland made history when she became the first African-American woman to be named principal dancer of the legendary American Ballet Theater.

Join Misty Copeland and Nelson George, director of the new feature documentary A Ballerina’s Tale, and moderator Gayle King, for the incredible, behind-the-scenes story of how she overcame a tumultuous upbringing and near career-ending injuries to become one of the most revered dancers of her generation. More than just a ballet success story, Copeland’s journey is a hugely inspirational, universal tale of perseverance.
