On this week’s show we hear from Nat Horne, an original member of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.  He shares his experiences growing up in the segregated south and his move to Broadway. As both a dancer and choreographer, Horne has a tremendous amount of respect in the industry. Today he opens up about not only his life on the stage, but also the events that lead him to get there.
