THE 3214 - Introduction to Black Theatre I

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ENG 1010 and ENG 1020 or permission of department

Description: This course is part of a two-semester course sequence addressing the evolution of Black Theatre in the United States. Students will gain an understanding of the importance of image as it relates to the creation, production, and function of Black Theatre through the years. Students will study and interpret plays from the mid-nineteenth century through the 1960’s. Students will not only study the work as an art form, but the historical origins and social, cultural, and political ramifications of the work. Analysis and exploration will juxtapose the realities of mainstream theater and culture with the solidification of Black Theatre as a field. This exploration will culminate with in-class performances of student directed monologues.
