Black Drama in America: An Anthology written by Darwin T. Turner

 

Black Drama in America: An Anthology written by Darwin T. Turner

Overview:

In this second edition of Black Drama in America, Darwin T. Turner presents a cross-section of African American drama written from the 1920s to the 1990s. The plays, selected from each decade, furnish a representative history of the African American playwright's development. The themes and settings the artists evoke create a historical portrait as well—from the early nineteenth century to the 1990s. Current as well as perennial issues of black life are rendered in a variety of forms—historical, realistic, romantic, mythical, revolutionary, and ritualistic—by artists who have national reputations in professional theatre as practicing playwrights.

Black Drama in America offers a balanced selection of well-known plays and dramas that have not been widely anthologized, and includes nine plays that were not published in the first edition. Discussions of the Pulitzer Prize-winning plays, women playwrights, and the Negro Ensemble Company supplement the comprehensive introduction from the first edition, and an expanded bibliography rounds out the volume.
