The theatre has always been a place where conceptions of race and racism have been staged, shared and perpetuated. Harvey Young introduces key ideas about race, before tracing its relationship with theatre and performance - from Ancient Athens to the present day.

Harvey Young is Associate Professor of Theatre and Performance Studies at Northwestern University, USA. He is the author of Embodying Black Experience, editor of The Cambridge Companion to African American Theatre and co-editor of Performance in the Borderlands and Reimagining A Raisin in the Sun: Four New Plays.
