Lamothe Presents at Song, Stage and Screen

Assistant Professor Dr. Virginia Lamothe recently presented a paper at the 13th annual “Song, Stage and Screen” Conference in LA May 31 – June 3. Her paper, titled “Dislocation of Language and Location in the New Creation of Blackness in Williams’ and Walker’s Abyssinia (1906),” examined how one of the first all-Black Broadway musicals defied conventions of blackface minstrelsy and began a trend in theater and film for Black artists to portray realistic characters without giving in to criticism of the white press in the early 20th century.
