Essay Topics

In Act II, Luke tells his son that music is just a moment. Discuss what is most important in life, according to Luke.

The jazz music that Luke plays is viewed as sinful by Margaret and the church elders. When Margaret invites the Philadelphia church to their Harlem church, she tells church members that they will be bringing drums and a trumpet. These instruments, along with the piano that David plays in the church, are all prominent instruments in jazz. Compare and contrast jazz with the music in the church.

Margaret makes a big deal that people can't be truly holy if their minds on other things like reading comics or driving liquor trucks as part of their job. What else in "The Amen Corner" is showed as something that keeps people from being holy?
