My Black History Month Journey of Celebrating Women in the Arts: Day 2 - Debbie Allen

  • Studied with Ballet Nacional and Ballet Folklorico (Mexico)
  • While still a cast member of Fame she became the first African American woman hired by a television network as a director in prime time. In 1989, after directing episodes of Fame, she co-wrote, produced, directed, choreographed and starred in The Debbie Allen Special for ABC.
  • For over twenty years, Allen's contributions to television, on the three major networks and in syndicated programming, have highlighted the maturity of a performer and artistic producer with an impressive spectrum of talents in the performing arts.
Grab a glass of water, and hang out with Debbie here. 

Ciao lovelies!
