MODERN BLACK THEATRE

 

Subject: AFRCNA

Course Number : 0210

Course Title:  MODERN BLACK THEATRE

Course Description:

From the civil rights era onward, there has been a creative explosion of theatrical work by Black artists in America.  In the theatrical work of this turbulent modern period, societal myths are retold, interrogated and exploded, and the medium itself is reinvented and reimagined to make room for voices that don’t often get heard in our more dominant and therefore reactionary cultural forms.  Through careful study of these plays and their playing, and by examining their particular cultural context, questions of race, racism and identity in contemporary American society will be explored.
