Ragtime is a very powerful and moving show whose core message is one of family, love, justice and tolerance. Set against a turbulent time in American history when tensions were high between whites, blacks and immigrants, there are racial slurs, and some violent scenes which may be shocking to some. As painful as this is to witness, this is a serious part of our nation’s history that needs to be acknowledged and lessons taken from in order for the true day of hope, peace and justice to arrive.
