Born and raised in the racially segregated Texan town of Rogers a couple of years after the 1929 Wall Street Crash, dancer and choreographer Alvin Ailey was a visionary artist who celebrated black culture by founding the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre in 1958. He blazed trails in a world that didn't always embrace him. This documentary hopes to unearth truths about a man who found his salvation through dance in a cornucopia of archive material.
