The play is based on the book “Growing Up in the Other Atlantic City: Wash's and the Northside” by city resident Turiya S. A. Raheem. From the 1920s through the 1970s the Washington family helped build and shape a vibrant and thriving African American community in Atlantic City’s Northside neighborhood. As we move through each decade of this true history, we witness the laughter, tears, ingenuity, hard work and commitment of one family’s pursuit of the American Dream
