Contemporary Black American Playwrights and Their Plays: A Biographical Directory and Dramatic Index

By Bernard L. Peterson Jr. | Go to book overview

GENERAL INDEX
This is a selective, general index of significant theatrical persons, organizations, and awards mentioned throughout this Directory. Because of space limitations, many names-- especially of individual actors, actresses, and other performers appearing in only one play--had to be excluded. Among the main criteria for selection of entries have been (a) the importance of the individual, organization, or award, and/or (b) the frequency of their mention in this book. A special effort has been made to include all black-oriented theatre groups, as well as all coauthors, librettists, composers, and directors. A name printed in all-capitals (e.g., BALDWIN, JAMES) indicates that the person is a black playwright whose entry is also included in the main Directory. A playwright in the main Directory is indexed only if he or she is also referred to in other entries or in other sections of the book.
