Review "In White America"

Description

In this piece, Bari Jean Hobbs reviews the documentary drama In White America by Martin Duberman. Hobbs mentions how the drama, which dealt with the “negro in America” had not been presented in two years and the production set in Keller Hall had no facilities, such as lighting, for drama. Despite these set backs, the group made up of four college students from North Carolina, conveyed emotional intensity and captured the spirit of the authors. In concluding his review, Hobbs mentions that the documentary, which was written for a white audience, was outdated “because the Negro in America today is more concerned with the future than the past.”
