Description
Black Theatre: The Making of a Movement documents the birth of a new theatre out of the Civil Rights activism of the 1950s, '60s and '70s. It is a veritable video encyclopedia of the leading figures, institutions and events of a movement that transformed the American stage. Amiri Baraka, Ossie Davis, James Earl Jones and Ntozake Shange describe their aspirations for a theatre serving the Black community. Excerpts of A Raisin in the Sun, Black Girl, Dutchman and For Colored Girls... reveal how these actors and playwrights laid the basis for the Black theater of the present. "An extraordinary documentary...A must for every contemporary theatre course." - Margaret Wilkerson, former Director, Center for Theatre Arts, U.C. Berkeley "Brilliantly captures the essence, soul and spirit of the Movement...Required viewing." - Larry Hamlin, National Black Theatre Festival.
