I found it interesting that Wilson is "taking each decade and looking at one of the most important questions that blacks confronted in that decade and writing a play about it." He is dedicated to giving African American history a voice. His views on uplifting black people and theater have led to controversy that began with his keynote address to the Theatre Communications Group National Conference on June 26, 1996 and culminated in a debate with a critic named Brustein on January 27, 1997. Wilson has been called a separatist, but Wilson sees this as a misinterpretation of his views.
