Misty Copeland, Resolute Woman

Misty Copeland recently was named the first African-American woman to be a principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre.

“I had moments of doubting myself, and wanting to quit, because I didn’t know that there would be a future for an African-American woman to make it to this level,” Ms. Copeland said at a news conference at the Metropolitan Opera House. “At the same time, it made me so hungry to push through, to carry the next generation.”
