This compilation of sixteen plays written during the Harlem Renaissance brings together for the first time the works of Langston Hughes, George S. Schuyler, Francis Hall Johnson, Shirley Graham, and others. In the introduction, James V. Hatch sets the plays in a historical context as he describes the challenges presented to artists by the political and social climate of the time. The topics of the plays cover the realm of the human experience in styles as wide-ranging as poetry, farce, comedy, tragedy, social realism, and romance. Individual introductions to each play provide essential biographical background on the playwrights. In the continuing rediscovery of writers and works from the Harlem Renaissance, Lost Plays of the Harlem Renaissance, 1920-1940, serves as essential background for contemporary readers and is a valuable contribution to African American literary and theatrical scholarship

Plays by and about women; an anthology by Victoria Sullivan( Book )

19 editions published between 1973 and 1984 in English and held by 1,339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eight plays, all written in this century, in which leading women dramatists present their own pictures of their sex. The theater has always been considered a mirror of its time, and many twentieth-century plays have reflected changing views of women. A large number of these, however, have been by men. Here is a volume of eight plays, all written in this century, in which leading women dramatists present their own pictures of their sex. The plays were chosen because they both read and play well and because they deal specifically with women and their problems
A history of African American theatre by Errol Hill( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first definitive history of African-American theatre. The text embraces a wide geography investigating companies from coast to coast as well as the anglophone Caribbean and African-American companies touring Europe, Australia, and Africa. This history represents a catholicity of styles--from African ritual to European forms, from amateur to professional, and from political nationalism to integration. It covers nearly two and a half centuries of black performance and production with issues of gender, class, and race ever in attendance. The volume covers all aspects of performance, including minstrel, vaudeville, cabaret acts, musicals, and opera. Shows by White playwrights that used black casts, particularly in music and dance, are included, as are productions of western classics and a host of Shakespeare plays. The breadth and vitality of black theatre history, from the individual performance to large-scale company productions, from political nationalism to integration, are conveyed in this volume. -- Publisher description

Inside the minstrel mask : readings in nineteenth-century blackface minstrelsy( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The blackface minstrel show occupies a central and contested space in the history of American popular culture. Its imitations and parodies helped shape society's perceptions of African Americans - and of women - and made their mark on national identity, policymaking decisions, and other entertainment forms such as vaudeville, burlesque, the revue, and, eventually, film, radio, and television. Gathered here are rare primary materials - including firsthand accounts of minstrel shows, minstrelsy guides, jokes, sketches, and sheet music - and the best of contemporary scholarship

Black theatre USA : plays by African Americans( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This revised and expanded Black Theatre U.S.A. broadens its collection to fifty-one outstanding plays, enhancing its status as the most authoritative anthology of African American drama with 22 new selections. Building on the well-respected first edition published in 1974, this edition features previously unpublished works including In Dahomey, Liberty Deferred, and Star of Ethiopia, and the Department of Interior's infamous 1918 food pageant. Contemporary plays by women have been added - Robbie McCauley's Sally's Rape, Anna Deavere Smith's Fires in the Mirror, and Aishah Rahman's The Mojo and the Sayso, as well as the modern classics - Ntozake Shange's Colored Girls..., Adrienne Kennedy's Funnyhouse of a Negro, and Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun. The range of this collection extends from 1847 to 1992, including the great names in the African American pantheon of writers - Paul Laurence Dunbar, W. E. B. Du Bois, Angelina Grimke, Zora Neale Hurston, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, and James Baldwin. The chronology begins with William Wells Brown's The Escape: or, a Leap for Freedom, based on his own life as an escaped slave. Two expatriot authors, Ira Aldridge and Victor Sejour, provide glimpses of life in Europe, while at home, playwrights struggled with the issues of birth control, miscegenation, lynching, and migration." "The book embraces both commercial successes such as George C. Wolfe's The Colored Museum, and Charles Fuller's A Soldier's Play, as well as lesser-known masterpieces - Ben Caldwell's The First Militant Preacher, Owen Dodson's The Confession Stone, and Ted Shine's Contribution. The stylistic range, too, runs the gamut of genre from the realism of Ted Ward, Lonne Elder III, and Ed Bullins to the surrealism of Marita Bonner and Aishah Rahman. Comedy is present in Abram Hill's On Strivers Row and Douglas Turner Ward's Day of Absence which mock the racism of both Blacks and Whites." --Book Jacket
Sorrow is the only faithful one : the life of Owen Dodson by James V Hatch( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born the ninth child of a poor Brooklyn family, Owen Dodson (1914-83) rose to a life of stunning achievement. A scholarship student at Bates College, where his classmates included John Ciardi and Edmund S. Muskie, Dodson went on to advanced study at Yale. His poetry and first novel were widely hailed by critics and general readers; during his career, he wrote or directed more than 300 dramatic presentations, and for twenty-five years he was a professor of drama at Howard University. James Hatch draws on extensive interviews with Dodson, his family, and his friends, and on access to private papers, placing Dodson in a social and literary context that will help readers understand Dodson's struggle with arthritis, alcohol, race, and homophobic prejudice
