Blues For An Alabama Sky at the Atlas
African Continuum Theatre Company Presents
Pearl Cleage's Blues for an Alabama Sky
It is the summer of 1930 in Harlem, New York. The creative euphoria of the Harlem Renaissance has given way to the harsher realities of the Great Depression. Invoking the image of African American expatriate extraordinaire, Josephine Baker, as both muse and myth, five characters, through their overlapping personalities and politics, struggle to look beyond 125th Street for the fulfillment of their dreams.
Directed by Walter Dallas
