Certain Aspects of Conflict in the Negro Family

Written by Tylie Shider
Directed by Othell J Miller

Certain Aspects of Conflict in the Negro Family explores a family’s internal divisions in response to the 1967 Plainfield, New Jersey riots. As tensions reach an all-time high between Newark residents and police, racial and civil unrest begins spilling into surrounding communities. Clif and Peach moved their family to Plainfield for the promise of a better future, but as the riots begin, the family contemplates a return to the South.

Tylie Shider is the recipient of the Liberty Live 2021/22 Commission. The Liberty Live commission is awarded biennially, in partnership with Kean University’s Liberty Hall.

The Liberty Live Commission program is made possible in part by a 2021 HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant from the Union County Board of County Commissioners.

Performances of Certain Aspects of Conflict in the Negro Family will be produced under Premiere’s AEA production contract.
