The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts has a catalog
listing the collection of playbills and reviews of New York productions.
Their number is 212 870 1630. Try also the Schomburg Center for Research
in Black Culture at 212 491 2200. I'd be interested to hear what you
find.

Of course, Errol Hill's "Shakespeare in Sable" is still (I believe)
considered the definitive study.  But, in addition to the many scholarly
sources I am sure will be recommended, don't miss Carlyle Brown's
well-researched and entertaining 1993 play, "The African Company
Performs Richard III."  It's available through Samuel French, but may
also be commercially published.
