Du Bois, African-American visionary leader and educator is a human rights activist. Mary White Ovington, Unitarian granddaughter of white abolitionists, is a daring and outspoken justice advocate.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"She is a white Unitarian activist spinster from a good family in Brooklyn. He is one of the greatest African-American intellectuals of the 20th century. Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington finds them on a Sunday afternoon in 1915, and the burning question is supposedly whether she can talk him out of resigning from the N.A.A.C.P., of which they are both founders."

THEATER PIZZAZZ REVIEW:

"Steeped in the history of racial inequality and the emergence of the NAACP as the nation’s oldest, largest and most widely recognized civil rights organization, Dr. Dubois and Miss Ovington dramatizes their relationship as members of the board. In response to the horrific practice of lynching primarily in the Southern states, Mary White Ovington and Oswald Garrison Villard, both descendants of abolitionists, were moved to become activists for racial justice. Dr. W. E. B. Dubois was one of seven African Americans who attended the first meeting. Dubois was the first African American to receive a doctoral degree. In 1910, as director of publications and research he founded The Crisis, the official journal of the NAACP."

BERKSHIRE FINE ARTS REVIEW:

"The New Federal Theatre founded and directed by Woodie King, Jr. and thriving in a new alliance with the Castillo Theatre on West 42nd Street in Manhattan, has produced an engaging and deeply moving play, Dr. Dubois and Miss Ovington. For playwright Clare Coss it is within our power to create a just and sane world. She may be on a mission, but her new play is not at all didactic. Multi-leveled, it is the story of the founding of the NAACP, The Crisis magazine and two of the civil rights’ movements early leaders."

NEW YORK THEATRE WIRE REVIEW:

"Most people know W.E.B. DuBois as a civil rights activist and co-founder of the N.A.A.C.P. In Dr. DuBois and Miss Ovington playwright Clare Coss presents another side of DuBois: his emotionally charged relationship with Mary White Ovington, a socialist, feminist, pacifist and suffragist who fought alongside DuBois and was one of his strongest champions."

LIGHTING AND SOUND AMERICA REVIEW:

"Playwright Clare Coss casts a light on a fascinating relationship -- not to mention an underdramatized bit of American history -- in Dr. Du Bois and Miss Ovington, and it's a shame she doesn't do more with it. W. E. B. Du Bois was a titanic figure, a scholar, activist, and intellectual, who, as director of publicity and research for the fledging NAACP, was the driving force behind The Call, a publication that reached hundreds of thousands of readers in its mission of exposing the poisonous effects of racism. Mary White Ovington was one of those remarkable early 20th-century ladies -- like Jane Addams and Frances Perkins -- who, defying the traditional expectations for women of their class, joined the settlement house movement, becoming key players in advocating for a more just society."
