Editorial Reviews

Review


Winner of the American Theatre and Drama Society (ATDS) Book Award, 2012.
Winner of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW) Book Award, 2012.

"Required reading for understanding the ways in which narrative and performance have been central to challenging white oppression as well as (re)imagining black identity in America. Highly recommended."--Choice


 
 

 



"Mitchell methodically documents and skillfully interprets lynching drama's important cultural work. . . . She illuminates an overlooked aspect African American literary history."--Arkansas Review
 
"Mitchell expertly brings in critical approaches from literary and performance studies to show how concepts such as 'circulation' and 'impact' held different meaning for citizens trying to survive traumatic events. . . . Her study offers significant new insights into a key historical movement and provides a model of academic scholarship."--American Historical Review

 



"Offers cogent insights into the cultural work of creative expression in a context of racial violence."--The Journal of American History

"If ever a lynching book could be described as beautiful, it would undoubtedly be Mitchell's for the gracious way she takes care to read, generously and meticulously, all that she sees and hears (as well as what she does not see and hear) when she enters the homes that these characters have struggled to build for themselves."--Signs

Book Description

The first full-length critical study of lynching plays in American culture
