More About the Author

D.C. Copeland's full-length play "Once Upon A Time In Harlem: A Jitterbug Romance" won the Jaz Dorsey Fusion Award from the African American Playwrights Exchange (AAPEX). The "radio" reading version (the book) had its first performance at the prestigious National Black Theatre in Harlem in March 2012. It was directed by noted director and actress Petronia Paley. She loved it enough to pitch the full-length 3-act play to a dozen Broadway producers through Theater Resources Unlimited's (TRU) by-invitation-only event at the legendary Players Theatre in NYC. By weaving an inspirational fictional love story through thoroughly researched historical eye-opening fact and legend, the play and book are appropriate for high school and college classrooms and theatre stages because they offer a rare look at the contributions of African Americans to vernacular dance and its influence on the world.

Copeland has also written and seen produced a documentary on Florida's biggest Civil War battle called "On the Road to Olustee."

Aside from this play, he has also written 12 feature-length screenplays and three novels.
