Black & Asian


This page will trace the emergence, development and work of  Black, Asian and other minority ethnic theatres active in British alternative theatre from 1968-88. We are currently looking for a specialist in this area of work who would be interested in creating the web page for us. Please contact us for more details.
There are a number of resources on Black Theatre in Britain in the 1970s and 80s that Unfinished Histories has been involved in that we plan to gradually put up on the web site to make them more accessible. To find out more and access the additional pages as they are put up please go to Black and Minority Ethnic Theatre Resources
