Before there was change, there was Birmingham.
Straight from a sold-out run during our inaugural season of Public LAB, this gripping new play rips through the pages of history to uncover the human story at the heart of the 1960's American Civil Rights Movement. In the increasingly hostile South, tensions build as a trio of emerging black leaders attempts 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. A co-production with Dallas Theater Center.
