Robert Johnson, Jr. is Professor of Africana Studies at University of Massachusetts Boston. His most recent play, Patience of Nantucket which was selected for a reading by National Black Theatre Festival in 2005, received excellent reviews upon its premiere in Boston and Nantucket, MA. The Boston Globe wrote: “Masterful ‘Patience’ is …power packed.” The Boston Herald wrote “Johnson’s script makes Patience so real, and though 150 years have passed, he’s worked in striking contemporary political parallels.”
