Ceremonies in Dark Old Men
Ceremonies in Dark Old Men written by Lonne Elder III in 1969 depicts a Black family living in Harlem with aspirations of how to use their talents to achieve a better life in white America. Though 50 years have passed,this play reveals how in 2020 the ravages of white supremacy, slavery, and Jim Crow impact Black people living in America.

Parker, the patriarch of the family, is a former vaudeville actor who never made it big. Despite a strong desire to get ahead he ran into systemic racism and a lack of economic opportunity. His barber shop was sustained by his deceased wife, who everyone believes worked herself to death supporting him and their two sons. Now, his daughter, another strong black woman has taken up where her mother left off.

Faced with degradation, Jim Crow, and white supremacy the play provides insights into why Black men choose a life of crime. This play, gives true meaning and insight into the present-day Black Lives Matter movement.
