WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This new play examines the tenuous relationship between one of the most prominent Jewish scholars and his African-American colleagues at the historically Black college, The Hampton Institute. Loosely based on the partnership of Artist/Professor Victor Lowenfeld and the late John Biggers, a prestigious African-American painter from Gastonia, North Carolina. The Upper Room attempts to illustrate the amazing dichotomy, life long friendship and mutual respect that existed between these two men, and shows the profound effect that the intermingling of these two cultures had on both the individuals and the subsequent development of American social history in the 20th Century.
