Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection consists of the master videos for “Blackbird’s Boogie in the Black Moonlight,” a theater piece written and performed by black San Francisco poet, performance artist and playwright Wayne Corbitt in the early 1990s. A flyer for the show describes it as a “provocative, moving collection of poetry” that “explores Corbitt’s creative sources -- his experiences in the South of Market scene in the 1980’s, his battle with HIV, and his childhood as the son of a ‘preacher woman.’”
