August Wilson

Published by Nick Hern Books

The Ground on Which I Stand, a passionate and controversial call for black cultural separatism: '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...' The Ground on Which I Stand is published as part of Nick Hern Books Dramatic Contexts series - important statements on the theatre by major figures in the theatre.
