The Dutchman is Leroi
Jones’ award-winning one-act play, revolving around two characters: Lula, a
white woman, and Clay, a black man. It lands right at the intersectionality of
race, gender and class to present an explosive exploration of white privilege,
masculinity, power and sexuality.
For Black History
Month we celebrate Leroi Jones (Amiri Baraka). Known both for his influential
political activism, fighting for the Rights of African Americans. And as a
revolutionary provocateur of African-American poetry; significantly affecting
the course of American literature.
