Black History Month - Amen Corner


The Township of Union invites you to celebrate Black History Month on Saturday, February 24th at Central Five – Jefferson School with a Staged Reading of the James Baldwin Play, “The Amen Corner.”

"The Amen Corner" follows the story of a beloved pastor, Margaret, who has raised her son, David, largely alone. As a pastor she asks her congregation to lead righteous lives, leaving no room for moral half-stepping even where it concerns means of survival or support of a fallen family. Through the course of the play, Baldwin unpacks the many complexities and conflicts riding the members of a family and a small congregation of a storefront church- including the secrets of the beloved Pastor herself. 

Join us as we learn about family, community and the crucial struggle to love people through the worst of everything.
