Out of the Civil Rights activism of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s was born a bright new theatre. Witness a veritable video encyclopedia of the leading figures, institutions and events of a movement that transformed the American stage.Excerpts of A Raisin in the SunBlack GirlTheDutchman and For Colored Girls… reveal how these actors and playwrights laid the basis for the Black theater of the present.
