A Brief Journey of African American Theatre: Story Tellers and Story Keepers In-Person

AAHRC is honored to close our 2024 Black History Month exploration of African Americans and the Arts with the venerable Thomas Meloncon.  A native son of Houston’s Fifth Ward, Meloncon is a nationally and internationally recognized playwright and poet.  He holds the position of Associate Professor of Theatre in the Visual and Performing Arts Department at Texas Southern University. Meloncon’s poetry publications include Recollections and Poetry in E Minor. His list of plays includes “Johnnie B. Goode”, published in Acting Up and Getting Down: Plays by African American Texans (University of Texas Press), and “The Man Who Saved New Orleans”, published in Callaloo: A Journal of African Diaspora Arts and Letters (John Hopkins University Press).
