34 Lynching playwrights who invested in the one-act format seemed convinced that, because it stood apart from the machinery of the commercial stage, amateur theater could affirm African Americans. The amateur theater that was encouraged, I contend, also likely took the form of family pastime. 35 Given the legacy that McHenry traces from the 1830s through the 1990s, surely we can imagine families in which each member read or memorized a part in a one-act play. ” Nevertheless, such articles—because they appeared in Crisis—drew all strata of the black community.
In the mob’s theatrical productions, the black body delighted audiences with its pained contortions, followed by its motionlessness. Likewise, black characters most often appeared on the mainstream stage in minstrelsy and musical comedy, and these shows placed them in far-away locales, such as “Dahomey,” or in white people’s houses as servants—anywhere but their own homes. Given these tendencies, it is important to recall that while blacks were said to be incapable of domesticity, popular culture elevated mammies and uncles.
Reading the dramas allowed for full expression of the pain of having black homes targeted and black humanity and citizenship disregarded. For instance, like most black-authored lynching plays, Mine Eyes Have Seen spotlights a family victimized by the mob, yet it emphasizes mob destruction without depicting physical violence or offering a detailed description of it. While newspapers recounted every dramatic moment of the lynching ritual, this genre focused attention on the mothers and children who “escaped” the violence only to survive as widows and orphans.
