See it if you're interested in how different people experience racism; parent/grown child friction and bickering; strong acting by a duo.
Don't see it if you want a light drama without conflict; you don't like two person plays or the subject matter. I was very affected by their relationship.
See it if You like the issues, grist for a good play...generational tension, aging and losing independence, approaches to institutional racism.

"Tyler's small, exquisitely observed and rendered 'Some Old Black Man' lets no one off the hook...The driving force of the play is the different ways in which the two men experienced white hatred...The staging is so intimate that you will feel like you could reach down and grab a spoonful of that yogurt parfait. This can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the authenticity of the dialogue and the skill of the performers. In this particular play, it is a very good thing indeed."
