What if...
All the black people suddenly disappeared for a day?

DAY OF ABSENCE, by Douglas Turner Ward is a hilariously funny satire about an imaginary southern town where all the black people have mysteriously vanished. And no one can find them or knows where to look, or understands why this disturbance has taken place. The Mayor of the town is out to get answers and pleads with the President, Governor and NAACP to help. What transpires in a day leaves the town with the sobering notice that things will never quite be the same again.
