Description

This is the story of a young woman born in Chicago who came to New York, won fame with her play, A Raisin in the Sun—and went on to new heights of artistry before her tragic 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-century America. Created from Hansberry's plays, poems and writings, these vignettes feature monologues supported by gospel singing and related instrumental music. 2 cassettes.
