The Ground on Which I Stand (Dramatic Contexts) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first publication of the address August Wilson gave at the TCG National Conference in 1996, which became the center of a major national debate conducted on the pages of The New Republic and American Theatre magazine, culminating with the sold-out debate between Wilson and Robert Brustein at Town Hall. This is Wilson's personal call for African-American artists and theatres to again seize the power over their own cultural and artistic identities in the contemporary American theatre.

Synopsis:

August Wilson's radical and provocative call to arms.
