Booker T. Washington, August Wilson, and the shadows in the garden
This essay situates dramatist August Wilson's twentieth century cycle dramas within the socioeconomic theory espoused by Booker T. Washington in his "Atlanta Exposition Address." The essay suggests that, similar to Washington, Wilson recognizes the value of farming and land ownership as viable components in the African American male's history. ©Mosaic.
