A passionate polemic from one of America's leading black playwrights. August Wilson makes a controversial call for black cultural separatism, asking for blacks and whites alike to alter their perception of black culture and black theatre. Written with a rhetorical energy, the work argues for the recognition that blacks are as much founders of America as the Pilgrim Fathers, and therefore deserve cultural parity. Though grounded in American experience, August Wilson's arguments in this work should be just as provocative wherever one race is in ascendancy over another.
