One of the best plays I ever seen!!!
22 November 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I recorded this when it came on PBS in the early 90s. My sister took the tape to Alaska with her and now it's lost forever. The Colored Museum is a great play and I highly recommend for it to go to video\dvd. I really wish PBS would televise it again or at the very least, sell the video. This was shown back in the heyday of good programming during Black History Month.

A very worthwhile video to own.
