Set in 1911 in a boarding house in Pittsburgh, Joe Turner's Come and Gone deals with a time in American history when the sons and daughters of recently freed slaves journeyed to the booming industrial cities of the North in search of prosperity, a new way of life, and, essentially, their own identities.

'a great writer shows us how it is done' - Romulus Linney, from his Foreword
