African American Women Playwrights: A Study in Race, Gender and
The present book makes a significant contribution to the fast-emerging area of contemporary black American women’s writing. A number of black women writers, including Toni Morrison and Alice Walker, have achieved eminence in the domain of fiction. This study highlights the contribution of major women playwrights — Adrienne Kennedy, Sonia Sanchez and Ntozake Shange, and examines their plays in terms
of three significant themes – race, gender and class. With growing interest in marginalised literatures, particularly in African American literature, women’s writing and theatre studies, this book is bound to
be useful to students, research scholars and teachers.
