Description - African American Performance and Theater History by Harry J. Elam

African-American Performance and Theater History is an anthology of critical writings that explores the intersections of race, theatre, and performance in America. Assembled by two of the most respected and prolific scholars in black theater and composed of essays from acknowledged authorities in the field (Joe Roach and Genevieve Fabre, among others), this volume is organized into four sections representative of the ways black theatre, drama, and performance past and present interact and enact continuous social, cultural, and political dialogues. The premise behind the book is that analysing African-American theatre and performance traditions offers insight into how race has operated and continues to operate in American society. The only one-volume collection of its kind, this volume is likely to become the central reference for those studying black theatre.
