Art is a powerful tool in touching the heart of its beholder. Beyond creating art for art’s sake, Cornelius Eady’s play “Brutal Imagination” is one literary piece that had more goal than just to entertain. Set to break the barriers of racism in a bigoted society, he chose the setting of America in the 1930’s to 1950’s for the second part of his book that contained the “Running Man”, a poem that I chose to look closely at. Set at a time when African-Americans barely had any voice in society, the poem was written from the point of view of a departed black man’s persona. As Eady himself was born in the late part of the 1950’s during the African-American Civil rights Movement when respect was hard to for black people. (William G. Thomas III, University of Virginia 2004)
The first part of the book are a series of poems that make up a play that was based on a real gothic crime that happened 1994 in South Carolina, as a disgruntled mother Susan Smith murders her two children and went to television and “told the world that a mysterious African-American carjacker had abducted her kids.” (Winters www.TheaterMania.com) I will be concentrating on the second part of the book, which had a series of poems that lamented strong external influences that break the spirit of a black family. “Running Man’s” relevance and connection to the entire piece cannot be ignored as Eady managed to identify the stereotypes and the perceptions of every white and black American at the time.
