The Chicago “DODO” Chapter of Tuskegee Airmen, Inc.
presents its annual Fall
ETA THEATER FUNDRAISER
Don’t miss this promise of a sensationally good time created for your social & artistic enjoyment!! he “AMEN CORNER”, written by James Baldwin This moving drama is set in Harlem, 1955; now a period which is fading into the shadows of history. We are transported to a community which is struggling to define itself within the no-man’s land between two extremes. One is represented by the almost crushingly claustrophobic church community with its puritanical adherence to the social code of 50’s America.
The other is the jazz world, where the music implicitly carries a message of personal spiritual liberation, of ‘attitude’ and rejection of all the conformity and repression of the status quo. For the Afro- American of the time, these two different worlds were intertwined; but also represented the conflicting ways for the black community to deal with society.
