Good Bad People tells the story of the Johnsons, a prominent Black family in Los Angeles. Miriam Johnson is a law professor, her husband is a doctor, and their daughters June and Audre are prep school and Ivy League-educated. Their son Amiri, however, is another story. Having struggled to find his way, Amiri is living at a homeless shelter in the city when he is shot and killed by police in a case of mistaken identity.

June, Audre and Miriam, along with Amiri’s former girlfriend and a reporter from the Los Angeles Times, struggle with each others’ reactions to this family tragedy. The topic of “respectability politics” is raised when June’s disappointment in her family’s reluctance to decry Amiri’s death publicly is viewed as the Johnsons being “too respectable” to have something like this happen to their family.
