RE: What did Alvin Ailey died from?


I had attended one of their performances a few years back, and was told that Alvin Ailey had died of a rare blood disease. But in school I just heard that it was caused by AIDS actually? Anybody know what the true story is?

The article here says he died in 1989 at age 58 from blood dyscrasia, a rare disorder that affects the bone marrow and red blood cells.
