Ethics & the Arts Program- Emory University says
Ethics & the Arts Program- Emory University partners with Alliance Theatre to host a dramatic reading of select scenes of "Blues for an Alabama Sky" and an engaging ethical discussion with playwright, Pearl Cleage! The Ethics @ the Arts Program is a signature program of the Emory Center for Ethics directed by Carlton Mackey.

BLUES FOR AN ALABAMA SKY is a timeless look at hopeful dreams in hopeless days during the twilight of the Harlem Renaissance, by Atlanta’s Own Pearl Cleage.

Harlem, New York, 1930. The harsh realities of the Great Depression have devastated the bright decade of the Harlem Renaissance. Disease and poverty have overshadowed the creative euphoria that fueled a surge of African-American artists, writers, and luminaries. A story with a rich cast of characters, scrambling to survive and make sense of their overlapping personalities, politics, and love. A classic by Atlanta’s own Pearl Cleage, as timely today as when it received its world premiere at the Alliance Theatre 20 years ago.
