Tale of Black Histories is a 1971 avant-garde Caribbean play created collaboratively under Martinican writer Edouard Glissant's direction to teach Caribbeans their local histories and culture, excluded from colonial education, and to link their stories with historical heroes, literature, and experiences from across the African diaspora and postcolonial world. Glissant specialist Suzy Cater will introduce and contextualize the play.
