I'd like to adopt Silas X. Floyd’s Short Stories for Colored People Both Old and Young for a solo project. Thanks!

I put it on the Launch Pad, viewtopic.php?f=28&t=83123

Just a note: I am not sure if it matters that I have recorded Jesus Christ Has Negro Blood in his Veins. I assume no note is made because there might be others interested in its being recorded again. Jim :thumbs:

Thanks Jim and Kirk,
I've removed both of these titles from the first post, since it's designed to be a list of things not already in the catalog.

I have adopted the one-act play by Katherine D. Tillman mentioned in the first post for the current one-act play collection.

Heirs of Slavery: A Little Drama of To-Day is a very short drama with very short roles (mostly female). If you'd like to help adding Katherine to our catalog, please claim a role here:
