In Search of a Model for African-American Drama

A Study of Selected Plays by Lorraine Hansberry, Amiri Baraka and Ntozake Shange

Philip Uko Effiong

In Search of a Model for African-American Drama, is a comparative study of how these three dramatists seek and devise new models to address the specific conditions of Blacks in America. Each writer relies on a different approach, each powerful, yet apparently contradictory. The author examines the dramatists' work in detail, exploring common and contrasting themes and models. « less more »
