To Be Young, Gifted, and Black (Black History Month Finale Festival)
Adapted posthumously by her husband, "Young, Gifted and Black" is a compilation of Lorraine Hansberry's - author of the classic "A Raisin in the Son"- plays, journals, essays, poems and speeches.
A prolific Black female writer, Hansberry's work was steeped in her experience living through life in the South Side of Chicago after World War II, during the depression and the first atom bomb being dropped. Being personally impacted by racial and political hysteria, cancer, lynching, drug additions and mental illness, among other things, Hansberry's work is rich with examination of the human experience.
