Abstract in Portuguese
Esta pesquisa pretende apontar a presença e a representação de elementos revolucionários nas estruturas formais das Four Black Revolutionary Plays: All Praises to the black man (Quatro Peças Revolucionárias Negras: Todos os louvores ao homem negro). Peças escritas pelo dramaturgo negro Amiri Baraka que, sobretudo nos anos sessenta, se colocou contra o establishment e produziu uma dramaturgia que pregava a valorização da cultura negra, o engajamento político e a rebeldia contra os valores do status quo branco e de parte da classe média negra norte-americana. Nossas hipóteses, aqui apresentadas, são de que a obra baraqueana é processual porque não se finda em um único período ou obra, mas guia-se por uma necessidade de mudança contínua em face dos acontecimentos históricos e sociais que o dramaturgo vivencia enquanto escreve suas peças e porque busca reescrever uma nova história e mitologia negra. Desta forma, ao procurar valorizar a negritude e os outros valores apregoados pelo movimento Black Power e pelo nacionalismo negro, Baraka desenvolve uma dramaturgia contundente que tenta abarcar as demandas da comunidade negra e que a instigue a agir coletivamente.

Abstract in English
This paper intends to spot the presence and representation of the revolutionary elements within the formal structures of the Four Black Revolutionary Plays: All Praises to the black man. These are the plays by the black playwright Amiri Baraka who, especially in the sixties, fought against the establishment by means of plays that extolled the appreciation of the black culture, the political engagement and the defiance of the white mens status quo and also a portion of the American black middle class. Our theses provided herein say Barakas work has an ever-evolving nature as its not restricted to a single time or work; rather, it is driven by the need for the continuous change due to the social and historic events the playwright experienced at the time he wrote his plays, also seeking to rewrite a new black history and mythology. Accordingly Baraka creates groundbreaking plays intended to consider and review the black communitys condition and make it act collectively in response.
