Cofounder and artistic director of the famed Negro Ensemble Company, Douglas Turner Ward is also the country's foremost authority on African Americans in theatre. Playwright and educator Gus Edwards talked with Ward about the opportunities for African American actors. The result is the first book to address the creative and professional challenges of acting from a specifically African American perspective.
For the actor of color, these conversations reveal much about important topics, including:
- ethnic specificity
- colorblind casting
- cultural honesty of roles.
Advice to a Young Black Actor is an indispensable book pioneering effort that is long overdue.
