Don Evans: Writing Black Stories that Everyone Could Enjoy

“A Modern Playwright in a Classical Vein.” That was the title of a 1980 New York Times article about playwright and TCNJ professor Donald T. Evans. Prof. Evans was a man of many passions and talents, from writing plays and poetry to teaching African American Studies at the College, aka Trenton State. Prof Evans’s work reflects not only his respect for the classics, but also his call to action at a time of great turbulence in American education and society.
