See The Green Book at Theatrical Outfit

Many of us became lawyers because we wanted to right injustice. Sometimes that is easy to forget in the drive to get ahead or just to stay afloat. However, The Green Book,  a wonderful play now showing at the Balzer Theater at Herrens on Luckie Street, is s jolting reminder that we must all do our part to fight injustice wherever it appears.

I had never heard of the The Green Book until I went to see the play of the same name by Calvin Alexander Ramsey at Theatrical Outfit. The Green Book is a book published from 1947 until 1964 that listed safe places for African-Americans to get food and lodging while traveling during the Jim Crow era. It is an eye-opening and thought-provoking play.

The production has been extended until September 25th. See it if you can. It may remind you of why you became a lawyer.
