Blues for an Alabama Sky Summary

Blues for an Alabama Sky by Pearl Cleage, a personal story of a community moving from renaissance to reality.

It’s the summer of 1930 and the creative spirit of the Harlem Renaissance is giving way to the realities of the Great Depression. In an apartment building on 126th street, five passionate and progressive friends carve out a future for themselves within a changing city. Playwright Pearl Cleage (Flyin’ West and Oprah Book Club selection What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day) tells a strikingly modern and spirited story set during a time when Rev Adam Clayton Powell, Jr was preaching activism in the Abyssinian Baptist Church and Josephine Baker was singing the blues in the Folies Bergère. After charming audiences around the world, Keen is proud to present its New York premiere.

Pearl Cleage is an award-winning playwright, bestselling novelist, published poet, and popular newspaper columnist. “Cleage writes with amazing grace and killer instinct.” - New York Times
