Kevin Albano March 26, 2008 Wine in the Wilderness and The Purple Flower Throughout the semester, our class has read many plays spanning from the mid 1800’s to today. The different styles of the plays we have read and the different messages that the authors attempt to portray shows the significant evolution of black theater’s ideas. Style and addressed issues have changed over time. In reading Wine in the Wilderness by Alice Childress, I was reminded of Bonner’s The Purple Flower . Both of these plays address some similar issues, but the difference in style and the way they went about presenting these subjects definitely shows that significant change has taken place in black theater from 1927 to 1969. The issues that Bonner wrote about in The Purple Flower were events that had been happening throughout African American history. She addressed the issues of education: she writes about the Young Us throwing away his books because they didn’t help him to learn anything that could benefit his people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
