Fresh from the PUBLIC THEATER in NY and THE GOODMAN THEATER in Chicago, this gripping new play (a thinly veiled fictional account of the early years of Martin Luther King and the SCLC) rips through the pages of history to uncover the human story at the heart of the 1960's American Civil Rights Movement.
Birmingham Alabama, 1962 tensions build as a trio of emerging black leaders attempt to conquer their individual demons amidst death threats from the Klan and wire taps by the FBI. Through personal and intimate stories inspired by the political upheavals of the era, The Good Negro examines the human frailties behind the historic headlines.
*This production of 'The Good Negro” offers two equally extraordinary and diverse casts delivering two distinct and exceptional interpretations of Tracey Scott Wilson's critically acclaimed and timely new drama.
