Black drama : anthology

"When this landmark collection first appeared in the early 1970s, an exciting new generation of black playwrights had come of age in a startingly short time. Suddenly the boundaries between stage and life had been dissolved by writers determined to tell what it means to be black in the here and now of America as no white had ever really known it. The twenty-three plays in this collection vary enormously in mood, method, and mode of attack. There is harsh realism, high and low comedy, surreal displacement of time, place and personality, using original techniques that compare with jazz in their innovative power. All, however, have their foundations firmly rooted in the truth of the black experience. Uncompromising in their vision and power, this bold new generation of playwrights gave voice to the anger, passion and pride that shaped a movement, and continue to energize the American theatre today" --Back cover.
