Good vs. Evil

Throughout the play “Mine Eyes Have Seen” as an audience your exposed to so much traumatizing events. The lynching of Chris’s father and not being offered justice. That easily influences the audience to anger, mad at how another human being can be morally wrong and held with any consequences. This is why the bible states

ISAIAH 1:17 Learn to do good;

Seek justice,

Reprove the ruthless,

Defend the orphan,

Plead for the widow.

Humanity must learn to reprove these injustice and reprove what is done ruthlessly.

This play doesn’t teach virtue or piety, what it does do is it shows the he lowest strata of human behavior. Killing a man is terrible because you kill his descendant and his kids. But i would agree that its necessary to have pieces of art like this because if the unrighteous isn’t exposed to us, how we know to what to stay away from.
