The Amen Corner is a three-act play by James Baldwin. It was Baldwin's first
attempt at theater following "Go Tell It on the Mountain." It was
first published in 1954, and inspired a short-lived 1983 Broadway musical
adaptation with the slightly truncated title, Amen Corner.
The play addresses
themes of the role of the church in the African-American family and the effect
of a poverty born of racial prejudice on the African-American community.
