The Purple flower

   This one-act expressionist drama is one of three plays written by Marita Bonner, an African American teacher and writer. The angelic-looking White Devils occupy the sides of the hill and dance on the Thin-Skin-of-Civilization to prevent the darker-skinned Us from reaching the top where the purple Flower-of-Life-At-Its-Fullest grows. Neither talk nor work nor studies nor prayer enables Us to make headway. The music of Us is appropriated. Ultimately, one of Us named Finest Blood goes forth with the understanding that blood must be shed.
