The Black Image in Early American Drama
Thompson, Larry
Black World, 26, 6, 54-69, Apr 75
A chronicle of the inferior images and social stereotypes of blacks as portrayed in early American drama. Through a discussion of representative plays, the development of black theatre is traced and the argument advanced that black playwrights, in responding to white stereotypes, also contributed to the perpetuation of racial myths.
