Religion and African American Theatre, 1858-1945

The NEH Faculty Fellowship will support the completion of a book, provisionally entitled "Religion and African American Theatre, 1858-1945." The book will be the first scholarly examination of the way in which religious ideology was reflected in plays written by African Americans through WWII, and contend that plays have been a vital site for conveying and contesting various theological perspectives within African American communities.
