I recommend N by Adrienne Pender. It is the story of the historic feud between Charles Gilpin, the first African-American to appear on Broadway, and Eugene O'Neill over the use of the N-word in Emperor Jones. The role gave Gilpin his first big role and also destroyed his career. Also, She'll Find Her Way Home by Valetta Anderson, a family drama in which skin color threatens a budding young romance. It's based on the African-American founders of Mound Bayou, Mississippi right after the Civil War.
This is a historical and dramatic representation of the African-American experience.
Please send more information to me about this project. I am a cofounder of a group called Minority Voices Theatre here in Eugene, Oregon. And I believe this material might work well for our mission. Here is the website for our theatre: http://minorityvoicestheatre.org/Thanks for your great information. I also asked for a copy of your Spoon River Anthology. firstname.lastname@example.orgStan Coleman
