COCA Spotlight
 
Anthony Lamarr
Playwright
Playwright Anthony L. White — who goes by his pen name Anthony Lamarr — grew up in Perry, Florida, near the railroad tracks.
 
Lamarr noticed how many small, southern towns had a similar railroad track running through it, often feeling as looming and impenetrable as a wall. Growing up on one side of the tracks versus the other sometimes meant that life looked incredibly different given varying socio-economic realities and segregation between races.
 
“I wanted to write a story about that,” says Lamarr, who began writing “Calming the Man.” “I wanted to do a play that was set in the 1970s after segregation and integration. African Americans felt they were going to finally be seen as equal, but it didn’t turn out that way. I think in that is the root of the angry black man myth. Black people became angrier because even though they weren’t segregated, there was still inequality...”
