Monday on Lake Effect: Boys and Men of Color Week, Becoming A Professional Ballet Dancer

Monday on Lake Effect:

A wide-ranging effort this week to take on the challenges faced by boys and men of color here. Later, an American team won Olympic gold in rowing 80 years ago. It’s a story that’s as compelling today as it was then. And the first part of a week-long series documenting the challenges of becoming a professional ballet dancer.
