O'Neil, Raymond

   The white producer of African American theatre founded the Ethiopian Art Theatre in Chicago with the intention of reaching integrated audiences with a mix of classics and folk drama. Among the black actors in his short-lived company (19221923) was Evelyn Preer, who played the title role in his premiere of The Chip Woman's Fortune (1922), which O'Neil then took to Washington, D.C., and New York.
