The Amen Corner was first produced at Howard University in 1955. Nearly 10 years later, it was revived in Los Angeles; the Los Angeles production was moved to Broadway in 1965, but in that era of militancy in A frican-A merican Drama, it was not enthusiastically received.
Some also point out that the names O’Neill gave the interracial couple, Jim and Ella, were those of his own parents and that the play is thus a forerunner of Long Day ’s Journey into Night (1956), in which the playwright depicted his parents’ struggles more directly. The play is rarely performed today despite its incisive analysis of racism’s insidious destruction of a man’s confidence and a woman’s love. Decades later, similar themes would be addressed in another American play featuring an interracial couple, The Great White Hope (1968) by Howard Sackler.
