Biographical Entries Sought: Black Diaspora Drama

Alexander Street Press seeks short biographical entries for inclusion in its
BLACK DRAMA database.

Alexander Street Press--an electronic publishing firm noted for its Civil
War Letters and Diaries and for North American Women’s Letters and
Diaries--is publishing a full-text searchable database titled BLACK DRAMA.
Integrating rare, hard-to-find plays and popular, widely-produced plays by
Blacks and about Blacks, BLACK DRAMA encompasses the work of playwrights
from the U.K., the Caribbean, the U.S. and Canada, and Anglophone Africa.
