An award-winning playwright, his play How We Got On — one of eight chosen by Connecticut’s Eugene O’Neill Theater Center for full development during the 2011 National Playwrights Conference — premiered at the 2012 Humana Festival of New American Plays in Kentucky. Goodwin’s latest drama, Blackademics, kicks off the 2012-2013 season at Chicago's Ma’at Production Association of Afrikan Centered Theatre (MPAACT).
