Jois Brownstein: In Abraham’s Bosom

My play group read In Abraham’s Bosom. What a story! This is the 1927 Pulitzer winner for drama. It is a primarily black cast and tells a sad and tragic story of a post slavery family. The protagonist, Abe, has a huge desire to start a school, but his bad temper and society’s view of blacks being educated, make it unlikely that he will be successful.
