Taking place on the date of June 22, 1937—the night boxer Joe Louis won his first World Heavyweight Championship—Pullman Porter Blues centers on three generations of African American train porters working a route from Chicago to New Orleans. Over the course of the journey, the three family members come to personify past, present, and future attitudes regarding race in a post-Civil War, pre-Civil Rights Movement United States. Blues music of the era also features heavily into the show, providing another link between African American cultures of the Northern and Southern cities that help frame the narrative.
A compelling tale of family, empowerment, and the changing landscapes of America, Pullman Porter Blues is one of the most thought-provoking plays about racial tension of the 1930s.
