schema:description""As the first African American woman to have a play professionally produced in New York City (Gold Through the Trees in 1952), Alice Childress occupies a profoundly important but rarely acknowledged place in the history of American theater. A political activist all her life, Childress worked as an actress until, in 1949, she began writing plays that presented a remarkably complex, nuanced, bitingly realistic portrait of the racial inequalities and social injustices of her time. ... Spanning the 1940s to the 1960s, Selected Plays presents the five plays that Childress herself believed were her best."--Page 4 of cover."@en
