In 1920s New York, the Harlem Renaissance changed the lives of African American artists, creatives, and writers. Taking place during the ‘Roaring Twenties’ era, the New Negro Movement made room for greater social, cultural and political discussion and ways of thinking. But as the Wall Street Crash triggered the Great Depression, the Harlem Renaissance felt the bite of a everchanging world.
Blues for an Alabama Sky explores the fallout in 1930s New York through the eyes of four friends. They try to keep their artistic dreams alive, but when one of them, Angel, falls for an Alabama stranger, can the quartet stay together? Or will the realities of 1930s living take its toll?
Pearl Cleage’s Blues for an Alabama Sky premiered in 1995, and the play immediately spoke to the nation. An excerpt of Blues for an Alabama Sky was staged during the 1996 Olympics opening ceremony in Atlanta, showcasing the work on a global scale.
