Dr. Ralph V. Coder


The purpose of this study is to discover and appraise the treatment of the Negro in modern .American drama from 1900 to 1950. The relationship of the black and white races is a problem that has been the concern of Americans since the beginning of American history, and it has not and perhaps never Will be solved. However, learning more about a problem should help one to understand it. An attempt would be made here to depict Negro life as it is viewed by the Negro dramatist and by the white dramatist, and to interpret and evaluate the materials and ideas presented by these dramatists. Although this study will necessarily be subject to some degree, an effort will be made to present unbiased interpretations and carefully weighed facts.
