James Baldwin "Blues For Mister Charlie :A Play"




Inspired by the case of Emmett Till, an African-American teenager who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955 at the age of 14, this is a dramatic look at southern small-town race relations at the mid-century point. As a play, though, it doesn't capture the usual power of Baldwin's prose. I don't think a reading can do it justice especially with the many characters on stage. Now,if only i could see a staged version of the play,then i would go back to re-read this paperback.
