At the age of 13, Misty Copeland was considered a prodigy in the world of classical ballet. I know of her as she was a San Pedro, CA local and Pedro will always have a piece of me.
I'm thrilled to see her speak at TED Talks.
Copeland speaks about the historical stories of ballet that often exclude people of color: She also tells us that ballet is not dead.
