Misty Copeland: On Pointe & On Purpose

With the world in the palm of her hands, the talented, beautiful and trailblazing Misty Copeland made history in 2007 by becoming the third Black female soloist in American Ballet Theater history, and the first in two decades. Misty Copeland’s rise to the top has not gone unnoticed and her career has inspired people, especially young women everywhere proving that Black Girls Rock! Which is why she’s this year’s recipient of the Young, Gifted and Black award.
