Wedding Band: A Love/Hate Story in Black and White
Written By Alice Childress
Directed by Cecilie Keenan
Childress’s drama is set in the summer of 1918. There is a war in Europe, and a smaller war in South Carolina. Julia is an African-American seamstress and Herman is a white German-American baker who has kept company with her for 10 years. Disapproval of their affair from neighbors and family, as well as South Carolina's laws prohibiting interracial marriage makes it increasingly hard for them to stay together.
