A history of the African Theatre, the first all-black theatre company in the United States. Founded in 1821 in New York by William Alexander Brown, the African Theatre was created in response to the social segregation of the day. Within its first year, however, the theatre had expanded its audience. No longer characterizing itself as a resort primarily for New York's African-American community, it began to address itself to New Yorkers in general. The author has researched and documented all available facts about the company: its members; productions; playhouses; length of operation; types of audiences; and the reasons for its demise.
