Big White Fog



Theodore Ward,


Nick Hern Books

Chicago's South Side in the 1920s. Struggling to keep his dreams alive and his family together, Victor Mason is an educated black man reduced to working on building sites. His loyalty to Marcus Garvey's Back to Africa movement clashes with his family's pursuit of the American Dream despite the twin evils of the Depression and of ubiquitous racism.

Never seen outside America until 2007, Theodore Ward's landmark family drama, Big White Fog, remains as poignant today as it was when it burst upon the Chicago stage in 1937 - and on to New York, where it was produced by the Negro Playwrights' Company, of which Ward was a co-founder with, among others, Paul Robeson and Langston Hughes.

A poignant family drama set in Chicago against a backdrop of the Great Depression and the inescapable racism of the times.
