"Firsthand memories of former slaves, recorded in the late 1930s under the Federal Writer's Project, form the basis [of this] moving evocation of shared servitude" ~ N.Y. Times

"The show, which is a collage of song, dance and dialogue, deals with the collective Black experience from pre Civil War days on. It describes the horrors, of course, but also takes account of the humor ... Do Lord is like a vivid etching come briefly to life" ~ N.Y. Daily News

"An engrossing and informative tapestry of daily life as it was lived then. There is great humor and warmth, along with passion and anger. And a sense of triumph in the overcoming" ~ Women's Wear Daily

"A theatrical event of rare distinction and achievement" ~ Christian Science Monitor
