McKayle was born in Harlem and began dancing as a teenager. He choreographed works that focused on black life and socially conscious themes. He was the first African-American man to both direct and choreograph major Broadway musicals and was rewarded with a Tony for his production of “Raisin.”
McKayle was professor emeritus of dance at the University of California, Irvine at the time of his death.
