The Colored Museum

The Colored Museum is a 1986 play by African-American playwright George C. Wolfe. Serving as an elaborate satire of the prominent themes and identities of African-American culture, the play is set in a fictional museum where African-American figures are kept for public consumption. Told in a series of eleven sketches, each segment centers on a different “exhibit” in the museum. Exploring themes of racism, stereotypes, intra-community conflicts in black culture, and the ongoing legacy of slavery and segregation, The Colored Museum received overwhelming critical praise for its provocative subject matter and in-depth exploration of the African-American theatrical and cultural past.
