Earlier this season, Broadway welcomed a critically acclaimed revival of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, which marked the first time the story was told on Broadway from the perspective of a Black family. The limited engagement, which played its final performance in January, co-starred Olivier nominee Wendell Pierce and Olivier winner Sharon D Clarke as Willy and Linda Loman, respectively. 

But they are not the only other Black artists who have provided groundbreaking moments in the American theatre. There are many, and that's why Playbill has created this history quiz, to see how well you know your Black theatre history.
