The small town of Elaine is the flashpoint for this tale of social and racial unrest in 1919 Arkansas. Black sharecroppers Effie and Virgil are attempting to organize with others for better wages when emotions and violence erupt amongst White and Black residents, leading to one of the deadliest racial confrontations in American history. In part two of the play, two interracial couples accidently stumble upon present day Elaine only to discover the effects of history in their “post-racial” society.
