To Be Young, Gifted and Black: An Informal Autobiography of Lorraine Hansberry
To Be Young, Gifted and Black is a special kind of autobiography, in a very special voice. Both the story and the voice belong to a young woman from Chicago who moved to New York, won fame with her first play, A Raisin in the Sun — and went on to new heights of artistry before her tragically early death.
In turns angry, loving, bitter, laughing and defiantly proud, the story, voice and message are all Lorraine Hansberry’s own, coming together in one of the major works of the black experience in mid-twentieth-century America.
