This course focuses on developing critical thinking and writing skills through the lens of African-American theatre artists who have sought to represent and interrogate representations of black identity in many contexts. In this course, we read and watch wide range of plays and other texts that help us to gain an understanding of the artistic lineage of African-American theatre-makers working today. We also practice thinking and writing deeply about social issues related to race and identity on the American stage. Ultimately, this course asks us to think deeply about the social conditions and contexts in which artists make work that speaks to their time and to ours.
