INDEX OF BLACK THEATRICAL
This is an index of predominantly black theatrical organizations and theatres included in
this directory. Symbols and abbreviations are the same as those used elsewhere in this
book. Cross references are used liberally to assist the reader in locating a given group.
Cities and/or states are given for those groups which had a known location or permanent
base. When several companies, troupes, or theatres are grouped together within a single
entry, two main styles of entries are used: If all of the organizations in the group entry
have the same page reference, they are placed in brackets and only one page citation is
given. (See Alabama Minstrels for example.) However, if at least one organization in
the group entry has a different or more than one page citation, then no brackets are used
and page references are given for each organization or theatre in the group. In the latter
case, prominent organizations (or those with two or more page citations) are listed first,
followed by less prominent organizations (or those with only one page citation). (See Lincoln Th. for example.) In some instances, a fairly long list of organizations with
similar titles has been broken up into two entries. (See Colored Minstrels.) In such cases,
the first entry includes those organizations that have the same page citation, and the
second entry includes those organizations that appear separately in the directory. Page
numbers in italics
indicate the location of a main entry for the organization or theatre.
