Abstract:

"A center of controversy over its portrayal of African-Americans since its debut, Porgy and Bess has thrived amidst a changing social climate for more than 60 years.

Academic experts address the still-volatile racial aspects of the work, while octogenarian Anne Brown, the original Bess, and other illustrious alumni and noted literary figures including Leontyne Price, William Warfield, Diahann Carroll, and Maya Angelou are featured in interviews and eloquent performance clips."--Container.
