Waiting for Giovanni

By Jewelle Gomez (in collaboration with Harry Waters, Jr.)

“Much of the play deals with the power of words, especially Baldwin’s fascination with and ability to use words. Along with the sit-ins, boycotts, demonstrations, riots, and marches, the civil rights movement was a battle over the use of words and the perspectives they carried with them.
“‘Black’ sought to supplant “colored” and “Negro” and in time was itself succeeded by “African-American.” “Homosexual” and “deviant” were toppled by “queer” and “gay,” which in turn are now evolving into an ever-changing spectrum of more inclusive initials. More than acceptance and awareness, the fight for words has been a fight for pride.
“It is this conflict which Gomez captures so poignantly.” 2011
