Black Drama contains the full text of 1,200 plays written from the mid-1800s to the present by 201 playwrights from North America, English-speaking Africa, the Caribbean, and other African diaspora countries.

The collection includes more than four hundred previously unpublished plays by writers such as Amiri Baraka, Ed Bullins, Randolph Edmonds, Femi Euba, Zora Neale Hurston, and many others. Each play is extensively and deeply indexed, allowing both keyword and multi-field searching. The plays are accompanied by reference materials, significant ancillary information, a rich performance database, and images.
