Childress must certainly have hated living here, because with the exception of one of his protagonists, nearly all of the characters in "Crazy In Alabama" come off as either racist buffoons or homicidal maniacs or, in a few instances, racist homicidal buffoons. For both Lucille and Peejoe, the summer of '65 will live on as the time when everybody went crazy in Alabama.

    Big Ma-- Louis' mother who has been taking care of her grandchildren since their mother left and who has no tolerance for Cecile and her behavior. The two half sisters haven't spoken in years, each determined to hold on to her version of the truth. Lucille, her children, and all her friends joyfully exit the courtroom while the sheriff through Peejoe's testimony is put under arrest for Taylor's murder. Alabama is in the geographical center of the Deep South.
