Bob discredited her as an acceptable applicant because she graduated from a college in Africa. Photo by Joyetta D. John- Mail room employee played by Kneesha Hill confronts the newly hired Black executive, Lillian, played by Angela Green about only socializing with the white executives and not hanging out with them. Photo by Joyetta D. Johnson. Its Up To You Residents Depict African Americans In Corporate America The message was powerful with a goal to be reached. The play, intentionally exaggerated, portrayed how Corporate America is predominately white and where the directors felt African Americans fitted in this society. It is up to every black individual to make a difference and break down barriers in the work place. Co-written and directed by Anthony Young and Valerie Butler, the play received ovations by both white and black residents. The play was set in a bank where the board members were all white with the exception of one Hispanic. To pacify the community since a large number of the customers were African American, the director of personnel realized that a black person needed to be in an executive position and not just in the mail room and in janitorial positions. The bank hired a fair-skinned black woman to fill two minority spots in order not to offend any white customers and execu tives. After the play, Ronald Green, president of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, spoke on modern day racism. He said "African Americans are always under microscopes and being watched in hopes of failure." He offered solutions to corporate America. Master your job, you can't just do 100 percent, you have to do 150 percent; use results to overcome discrimination, always make progress and you can't be denied; pay your dues, you have to make sacrifices, but don't sacrifice your family and integrity; continue learning and most importantly, don't even venture into corporate America, start your own business. Be producers not consumers.. The floor was then opened to questions. Afterwards, the program ended with refreshments. The play will be nominated for Program of the Year Award by RHA, said Jerry Alwais, RHA president. -Joyetta D.Johnson ^ It's Up ToYou 87
