The Amen Corner

After giving a fiery Sunday morning sermon, Margaret, a pastor is confronted by the unexpected arrival of someone from her past. This begins to show the double-edged sword of righteousness, and is transforms into a rousing, emotional display of faith and redemption. Amen Corner also portrays the incongruity of religious idealism and harsh reality in an African American community plagued by poverty and racial prejudice.
