Dr. Nzinga was a student of X's when he taught theatre at Laney College, 1981. She directed and performed in his play In the Name of Love, 1991, and his docudrama One Day in the Life, 1996-2002 (Recovery Theatre), the longest running Black play in the Bay. Ishmael Reed said, "One Day in the Life is the most powerful drama I've seen."
