“The Merchant of Venice”
Nashville Globe – February 15, 1907
On Friday of next week the Junior College Class of Fisk University will present the “Merchant of Venice” in the Fisk Memorial Chapel, commencing at 8 pm. Much care, time and pains have been spent in the preparation and practice towards the end of making the play the huge success that indications show it would be. Among the personnel are James A. Myers, of Lexington, Ky., in the role of Antonio the merchant, and William Arthur Macintyre, of Port of Spain, Trinidad, B.N.I., as Bassanio, the friend and born companion of Antonio.
The proceeds are to be devoted to the endowment fund of the Carnegie Library, and it is hoped that this fact, apart from the literary treat in store, will draw a representative gathering of the lovers of race progress.
