Scrapmettle presents James Baldwin's The Amen Corner to support the preservation of historic High Street Baptist Church in Danville, Virginia. High Street Baptist Church was one of the locations where Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke and was a hub for non-violent protest training during the Civil Rights Movement.
The Amen Corner, Baldwin's first play is about Margaret, the pastor of a storefront church with a past that returns to her doorstep for resolution. Margaret's church family and blood family come face-to-face to settle both internal and external conflicts about shame, judgement and what it means to do the "right" thing.
Directed by Kerri Mubaarak with Ambria Webster.
