Contemporary African American Female Playwrights: An Annotated Bibliography

By Dana A. Williams | Go to book overview

PREFACE
Because research is a vital aspect of every serious academician's life, it only seems fitting that if one scholar can make research more bearable for and information more accessible to other scholars, one would not hesitate to do so. It is precisely this thought that I kept in mind while compiling this bibliography. The organization is simple but thorough, composite yet logical.Section I contains the annotated entries of selected anthologies which include one or more plays by contemporary African American female playwrights. The annotations include bibliographic information for the anthologies and the titles of the dramas by contemporary African American women included in each anthology. In some instances, the total number of dramas anthologized in a single anthology has been included to show the under-representation of contemporary African American women in drama anthologies. Anthologies are listed in alphabetical order according to editors' last names. For those editors who have compiled more than one anthology, the anthologies are listed chronologically according to publication dates. In the rare instances when one editor has compiled more than one anthology in the same year, the titles of the anthology have been used to determine the order of listing.Section II contains the annotated entries of selected general criticism that provides insight into dramas by contemporary African American female playwrights. The annotation contains bibliographic information and highlights which dramatists are featured in the respective works. Listings in this section follow the same pattern as Section I--alphabetical order according to editor or author.Section III includes the annotated entries on individual dramatists, each of whom meets the following criteria for inclusion in the bibliography:
1. All playwrights are female and African American.
2. All playwrights are citizens of the United States or have resided in the United States for an extensive period of time.
3. All playwrights have had at least one drama published since 1959.
