JAMES HEWLITT
Shakespearean Actor
African Grove Theatre
New York City 1821-1824

When black entrepreneur, actor and playwright William Brown opened his Off-Broadway African Grove Theatre in 1821, he and his starring performer James Hewlitt, along with an all-black cast, performed Shakespearean plays with such skill that they seduced white audiences away from the all-white Park Theatre located a few blocks away. Stephen Price, manager of the Park Theatre, sent rowdies to disrupt the African Grove performances.
