The Ground On Which I Stand

By August Wilson

Paperback £6.99

A passionate and controversial call for black cultural separatism, from the author of the Olivier award-winning Jitney and the Pulitzer Prize-winning King Hedley II.

August Wilson's The Ground on Which I Stand is published in the Nick Hern Books Dramatic Contexts series: important statements on the theatre by major figures in the theatre.

'I believe that race matters - that it is the largest, most identifiable part of our personality... Cultural Imperialists view European culture as beyond reproach in its perfection. It is inconceivable to them that life could be lived without knowing Shakespeare or Mozart... The idea that blacks have their own way of responding to the world, their own values, style, linguistics, religion and aesthetics, is unacceptable to them... We reject any attempt to blot us out...'
