The Sundance Institute and Time Warner have announced that Tracey Scott Wilson has been named a 2007 Fellow of the Time Warner Storytelling Advancement Fund for the development of her new play The Good Negro. She will receive a $5,000 grant and will be given a combination of year-round guidance, residency support, mentoring, work presentation, professional development, and ongoing investment.

In The Good Negro, a trio of emerging black civil rights leaders must conquer their individual demons, the local KKK fights for its old way of live, and black men and women must overcome all their fears, all under the watchful eye of the FBI.

Wilson's previous work includes The Story, Order My Steps, Exhibit #9, and Leader of the People. She earned two Van Lier Fellowships from the New York Theatre Workshop, a residency at Sundance, and is the winner of the 2001 Helen Merrill Emerging Playwright Award, the 2003 AT&T Onstage Award, the 2004 Whiting Award, and the 2004 Kesselring Prize for Playwriting.
