"The Good Negro" establishes the confluence of events that told a specific story while also analogizing the entire Civil Rights Movement.
This show, being produced at this time in history, is particularly apt. There are an abominable amount of Americans just coming to accept racial diversity, and an even more humiliating amount of Americans still clinging to the ideals of ignorance. There is still racial inequality, and there are, now, additional civil rights/liberties that still need to be fought for. This production is cathartic and instructional for those still waiting for an end to prejudicial ideology and action. First and foremost, however, the play's message is a salute to the courage of the men and women in this mighty movement that brought America that much closer to the ideals of its Constitution and the freedoms enshrined therein.
"Vibrant, first rate" - New York Times
"This thunderous, new play is stunning" - Variety
"It all looks so nice and neat decades later, but as playwright Tracey Scott Wilson displays in her remarkable civil-rights-era epic, this was a war with frailty on all sides." - Dannius Polkow, New City Chicago
