Good People – A Play by Elaine Blanchard @ Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library
Feb 26 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Hello Out There!

I have written and will perform a piece, “Good People,” about my childhood introduction to racism, violence and injustice. My performance will be enhanced by the beautiful bass-baritone singing voice of Laurence R. Albert. We will be on stage at the library (Benjamin Hooks Central Library) on Sunday afternoon, February 26, at 2:00. The performance is sponsored by Grace St Luke’s Episcopal Church and by the Memphis Library. The piano is being donated by Amro Music. There is no admission fee. Blanchard and Albert will engage the audience in a conversation immediately following the performance. This is an important story. All forms of “isms” hurt all of us. We cannot know our own beauty, power and goodness until all people are free to share the experience.
