When ballet prodigy Misty Copeland first placed her hands on the barre at a Boys & Girls Club, no one expected the undersized, anxious 13-year-old to become a groundbreaking ballerina. Only the third African American soloist to dance with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre, Misty has documented her journey in her new book, Life in Motion. Misty reads from her memoir and talks about her journey—from living in a motel with her family while learning to dance—to the highly publicized custody battle that gave her the freedom to embrace both her identity and her dreams.
