To Be Young, Gifted & Black

"Though it be a thrilling and marvelous thing to be merely young and gifted in such times, it is doubly so—doubly dynamic—to be young, gifted and black." After winning fame with her play Raisin in the Sun, Lorraine Hansberry, uniquely and boldly, weaves through her life experiences that shaped her. In angry, loving, bitter, laughing, and defiantly proud turns, the story, voice, and message are Lorraine Hansberry's own, offering a glimpse of the black experience in mid-century America.
