"Tale of Black Histories" was originally written and performed in French ("Histoire de nègre") by members of the Institute for Martinican Studies in 1971. This avant-garde theater experience explores the history of Afro-Caribbean peoples through the periods of slavery, independence movements, and the Civil Rights era. Members of the Asante Children's Theatre of Indianapolis will read from the first-ever English translation of the play under the direction of Gilbert Laumord, artistic director, SIYAJ Theater Company, Guadeloupe. A short lecture by the play's translators, Dr. Andrew Daily (University of Memphis)nd Dr. Emily Sahakian (University of Georgia), will precede the reading. A link to the video of the performance will be added to the Library of Glissant Studies.
