American Negro Theatre Alumni photograph collection ( visu )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The American Negro Theatre Alumni Photograph Collection was assembled by the American Negro Theater (ANT) Alumni Committee as part of a fundraising campaign which led to the renovation of ANT's original home in the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Materials documenting the history of ANT were gathered for an exhibition to mark the theater's 1991 re-dedication. After the exhibition, nine former ANT members donated their photographs to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. The collection documents various ANT productions and other activities, as well as the later career pursuits of some former ANT members after the group's demise in the early 1950s. The collection consists mainly of publicity portraits, production stills and candid shots of theatrical, political and social events. Most images are from the 1940s and 1950s with some shots taken through the early 1980s. The collection does not reflect the majority of personalities and productions associated with ANT, nor does document the donors' personal lives. Some images are unidentified. The collection is organized into nine series, representing the material given by the nine donors
