Akron, OH - The Nightlight is still playing Ailey on their screen. Ailey is a documentary movie directed by Jamila Wignot. The film is about the journey of Alvin Ailey.

Alvin Ailey was born in Rogers, Texas, in 1931, and some of his most iconic works were influenced by his experiences in the rural South. In 1969, he founded The Ailey School, and in 1974, he founded the Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble (now Ailey II).

There are so many people who are familiar with the name Alvin Ailey, but how many are familiar with the man? This movie answers that question.

Ailey's dedication to finding truth in the movement resulted in groundbreaking and enduring choreography based on African American experiences. The Director Jamila Wignot has a compelling biography that offers creative access to the enigmatic visionary.

These circumstances are the ones that established the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater with Alvin Ailey himself. They formed Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in 1958 to realize the vision of a group dedicated to preserving America's modern dance history. The theatre is claimed as one of the world's most recognized dance organizations.
