Black Children & Youth Learn about William Shakespeare at School & through Media.
They Should also Learn about Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Ossie Davis & Ruby Dee, Melvin Van Peebles, Amiri Baraka & August Wilson as well…Black Playwrights, telling Our Story.
Don’t Depend on them Learning about Black Playwrights in School or through Media. Forget that. Buy books on the Black Playwrights, or Simply have your Children do Research on them with those Fancy Phones & Tablets via The Internet.
Tell them “Chill on the Games a Little Bit. By the End of the Week, you got to give me some Book Reports on a Few Black Playwrights.”
Our Children are Lucky if they have heard of Langston Hughes as a Playwright. Some may have heard him as a Poet.
There are 7 Black Playwrights on this List.
Our Children should be just as familiar with their works as they are with William Shakespeare’s work.
