BLACK BOARDING SCHOOLS

I had space to let me be

Tarell Alvin McCraney’s Choir Boy takes place in an all-boy, all-black boarding school. It opens with Pharus Jonathan Young, singing the school song:

 

When we walk with the Lord

In the light of His Word,

What a glory He sheds on our way!

While we do His good will,

He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.
