Article excerpt

 

Palgrave (formerly St. Martin's Press) strengthens its niche in African American theatre with two new books. Glenda E. Gill's No Surrender! No Retreat!: African American Pioneer Performers of Twentieth-Century American Theater and Brenda Dixon Gottschild's Waltzing in the Dark: African American Vaudeville and Race Politics in the Swing Era take up the task of analyzing and historicizing the contributions of African American performers during the last century.
