Black Theatre AFR 1321/Section D847 Mon 2:30 PM

Black Theatre AFR 1321/Section D847 Mon 2:30 PM

A study of African American dramatic literature to explore the complex ways in which the black experience is constructed and presented by playwrights. Students may have an opportunity to experience a theatrical production in New York City. More specifically, this course is divided into distinct sections. It includes a historical overview of early Black theatre throughout the diaspora. It considers how mid-twentieth century playwrights like Lorraine Hansberry, James Baldwin, Leroi Jones/Amiri Baraka, and Ntozake Shange shape the aesthetics and discourses within Black theatre, and in doing so, create trajectories for contemporary Black playwrights, who also explore the social, political and cultural experiences of Africana people.

The Place Where We Dwell: Reading and Writing About NYC

The Place Where We Dwell: Reading and Writing About NYC

The essays collected in your anthology are focused on New York City and urban issues. Reflecting on your own urban experiences alongside these essays will help you become an active participant in discussions about communities, public space, urban art forms, education, homelessness, crime, gentrification, the environment, and other topics of debate. Thinking critically about cities will also help you learn to use writing as a technology for managing competing ideas and clarifying and defending your own.
