Talkback Discussion at The Good Negro

Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. will host a post-show discussion immediately following the Saturday, April 11 2 p.m. matinee of The Good Negro by Tracey Scott Wilson. Directed by Liesl Tommy and presented in association with Dallas Theater Center, The Good Negro opened to critical acclaim last month and will continue its extended run through Sunday, April 19. [Note: one of the critics who acclaimed the show is yours truly; read my review of this excellent play here.]

Dr. Gates, one of the world’s most respected public intellectuals and the Director of Harvard University’s W.E.B. DuBois Institute for African and African-American Research, will moderate a discussion between The Good Negro’s playwright Tracey Scott Wilson and director Liesl Tommy, and Diane McWhorter, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Carry Me Home. The discussion will be open to all ticket holders for the April 11 matinee performance; no additional admission is required.
