WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Thomas Wolfe's Welcome to Our City is a gripping, emotional tale of greed and racism disguised as progress. The action centers on a scheme of the town fathers and real estate promoters of Altamont to snatch up all the property in a centrally located black district, evict the tenants, tear down their houses and shops, and build a new white residential section in its place. When the blacks, under the angry leadership of a strong-willed doctor, resist eviction, a race riot breaks out--shattering both the precarious social balance of the city and the "progressive" dreams of Altamont's boosters. Jonathan Bank directs.
