Adventure Theatre MTC continues its Sunday Story Time interviews with Ava Holloway and Amanda Lynch, authors of the book, “My Ancestors’ Wildest Dreams,” based on the viral photo of Ava performing ballet in front of the soon-to-be removed Robert E. Lee Memorial in Richmond, VA. Earlier this year, Ava gathered with several other young black ballerinas and photographers (including her mother) on the steps of the memorial in a moment that went viral by the end of the photo shoot, retweeted by Misty Copeland and Reese Witherspoon. She and her mother created a children’s book based on Ava’s photographs as part of their self-declared ‘summer of activism.’ Learn more at https://brownballerinasforchange.com/
