About The Book
“Fine reading and a superb resource.” — Ms.
“Highly recommended.” — Library Journal
“Perkins has chosen the plays well, and her issue-oriented introduction places the women and their works in a literary and historical context.” — Choice
“As well as being centered on the black experience, the plays in Black Female Playwrights are centered on the female experience.” — Voice Literary Supplement
“Perkins’ anthology is valuable for a number of reasons… Perkins’ book (which includes a bibliography of plays and pageants by black women before 1950 as well as a selected bibliography of critical works) is a major help in providing access to [the world of black drama].” — Theatre Journal
The need to acknowledge these works was the impetus behind this volume. Perkins has selected nineteen plays from seven writers who were among the major dramatizers of the black experience during this early period. As forerunners to the activist black theater of the 1950s and 1960s, these plays represent a critical stage in the development of black drama in the United States.
