It's 1969 and change is in the air. But for Memphis, the owner of a rundown diner in a dying Pittsburgh neighborhood, the civil rights movement takes a back seat to more immediate problems. His diner has been slated for demolition in the city's urban renewal plan, but he has a competing offer from a predatory businessman. Caught between idealism and brutal reality, Memphis struggles to determine the fate of the place where his customers gathered for decades to share their struggles, hopes and dreams. Pulitzer Prize-winner August Wilson's searing, humorous, and potent portrait of African-American life in the '60s tells a complex story of the inner lives of ordinary people at a turning point in American history.

A lot of the characters/anecdotes were quite poignant, and exposed me to a side of life that I may have otherwise not encountered. At the same time, there were a couple of stories that I didn't follow or couldn't understand why they were included in the narrative. Overall the show was very entertaining.
Sweet Tea is presented in association with the Ellen Stone Belic Institute for the Study of Women and Gender in the Arts and Media, at Columbia College, Chicago.
