    1. This was loosely based on the story of Jack Johnson, the first African American world heavyweight champion Johnson infuriated whites by roundly drubbing every white boxer he fought He also dated white women, a taboo into the early 20th century Eventually authorities charged Johnson with violating the Mann Act, for which there was little evidence and is recognized as having been motivated by racism.The play uses all of this as a frame for its story, and makes it a compelling one, though it is hig [...]


    2. Excruciating to read Will try to watch the film I m sure I missed so much just figuring out the dialogue since so much is captured phonetically.


    3. May 26, 2015 Review Well, I did add this to the mix of plays we read recently at SUNY Sullivan in consideration for the 2015 2016 Season I wanted to hear it aloud to see if it was too dated or not I m still on the fence about that because I only had three readers that night and we were switching roles too much to let me really hear it The director in me loves this monster I want to see how I could play with its crazy jump cuts and language use, but is a monster of a play Lots of characters, lots [...]


    4. Eliza MalakoffMrs MartinEnglish 10 Honors17 June, 2013The Great White Hope Book Review In December of 1908, African American boxer Jack Johnson defeated his white counterpart to win the heavyweight national championship, setting off a barrage of racial controversy Further controversy erupted after Jack publicized his engagement to a young white woman, Ellie Bachman As white officials began searching frantically for a white boxer who could reclaim the national title, African Americans responded w [...]


    5. Wow I was not expecting to love this play as much as I did I wasn t even expecting to like it, I rarely like mainstream plays from this era of the American theater To me they re usually just period pieces with dated dialogue and melodramatic plotlines written with the Pulitzer in mind.So here I had a Pulitzer winner from the 50 s and I was expecting just another run around the cliche track I wasn t expecting one of the most epic plays I ve ever read To see a well done full on production of this [...]


    6. This Pulitzer Prize winning play didn t thrill me I m sure it s much better on stage, but on the page it feels dated The plot is a fictionalized retelling of the real life boxer Jack Johnson He found success during the Jim Crow era and became the very first African American world heavyweight boxing champion The play focuses heavily on his white girlfriend and the controversy their relationship caused He was actually sent to jail because of the relationship at one point I had a hard time getting [...]


    7. This Pulitzer and Tony winner is loosely based off Jack Johnson, the first African American boxer to become world champion The title comes from the desire of white Americans to find a white boxer who could beat Johnson, hence the great white hope That Johnson also married a white woman in pre WWI America makes him that much intriguing.Maybe I would feel differently seeing The Great White Hope staged, but I found the play too scattered and overly populated with subplots and characters A simpler [...]


    8. A lot of characters and a lot of stage directions Very distracting I feel like the story is good enough that it doesn t need all the direction I understand that reading a play is very different from seeing one Perhaps the version I read is really only meant for those who are putting on the production rather than for people just looking the read the play.
