Rachel; a play in three acts by Angelina Weld Grimké( Book )

19 editions published between 1920 and 2012 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This three-act play depicts an educated and sensitive young woman who comes into an understanding of the realities of American racism. Eventually she experiences acute melancholia because of her new understanding. In Act One it is clear that her love for children inspires a deep desire to someday carry her own. She proceeds to fill her mother's house with little brown and black children, whom she lovingly tends to. Her mother reveals to her and her brother the fact that her father and another brother were lynched ten year earlier. In the Acts that follow, Rachel learns of the racism the young children she loves have been made to endure in their school and resolves to never have children. In so doing, she must ultimately reject the love of her brother friend and the man who courts her and that she loves John Strong
Rachel by Angelina Weld Grimké( )

10 editions published between 1920 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rachel is a young, educated, middle-class woman. But she is born into an African-American family in the early 20th century--a world in which ignorance and violence prevail. While her family and neighbours find different ways to survive, Rachel's dreams of getting married and becoming a mother collide with the tragic events of her family's past as she confronts the harsh reality of a racist world. Written exactly midway between the American Civil War and the end of slavery, and the explosion of Civil Rights in the 1960s, this hauntingly beautiful and profoundly shocking play still asks urgent questions for today."--Back cover
