Overview

Coolness and Courage is a one-act play that shows how a boy in trouble, Raheem, learns to make the right decisions. Sentenced to community service in a nursing home, he meets a resident who tells him the history of the Buffalo Soldiers, the tough African-American fighting men who overcame prejudice, Native American warriors, and terrible living conditions to pacify the Old West. After learning how those heroes overcame adversity with honor, Raheem has the chance to do something similar when his former partners in crime make him an offer. Designed to be set up and performed in one classroom period, with time left for discussion, Coolness and Courage has been successfully performed for schools, youth groups, and churches by young men who faced the same inner-city challenges Raheem has to confront in the play.


Author Bio: Terry Kroenung teaches Drama and Multicultural Literature at Roosevelt High School in Johnstown, Colorado. For five years he taught troubled inner-city youth at VisionQuest, a juvenile treatment program that used the Buffalo Soldier experience (and this play) to put young men and women back on the right path.

    Author's Note

    'Coolness and Courage' is a play about the Buffalo Soldiers of the Old West. An inner- city teenager involved with gangs learns about his heritage and about making proper decisions when he meets a retired Buffalo Soldier. The play is designed to be performed in a standard class period with minimal technical support. It has been successfully performed for multicultural audiences in Florida and Texas. I hope you enjoy it!
