The child of African-American tenant farmers, Massengale grew up in East Texas during the Depression. Now a businessman, he offers six richly textured lessons on building character. The production is also a reminder, shared without rancor, of the institutional and interpersonal racism that existed throughout that period. The message is that businessmen and fathers can rise above the injustices black men face, as well as obstacles and challenges more universally experienced. Not burdened by sentimentality or vanity, the powerful lessons work for all people trying to serve their children, their customers, and the broader community. The talented readers add their own texture to this satisfying lesson. With smooth speaking voices, they sound as connected to the material as readers could be.
