In Abraham's Bosom Performance

The second of 19 public events celebrating the centennial of the Pulitzer Prizes was another great success. Almost 200 people attended the staged reading of Paul Green's 1927 Pulitzer Prize-winning play In Abraham's Bosom, which focuses on the difficult life of an African American farmer in North Carolina trying to start a school for African Americans. This is the first time the play has been performed in the Southeast. The performance took place Monday, April 4th at the Paul Green Theatre at UNC Chapel Hill, Green's alma-mater. Former NCHC trustee and African American Studies scholar Reginald Hildebrand and Paul Green scholar Laurence Avery guided an informative post-performance question and answer session, focusing on the play's themes and their relevance today. Thank you to Marian Fragola, Raheem Aleem, Carol Vorhaus and other trustees who attended.
