Description
Open to all students. This course explores perspectives of historical and contemporary American society from a minority viewpoint through reading and analyzing plays written by Black authors from antebellum times to the present. The course examines works by African-American dramatists, and it compares these with a body of plays that shaped the popular image of Black life in America and in many cases perpetuated negative stereotypes of African-Americans.
