To Be Young, Gifted and Black
by Lorraine Hansberry and James Baldwin




Overview -
"Anyone who has ever wondered what it really means to be black will find the answer in this book."--MINNEAPOLIS TRIBUNE

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 defi antly 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.


"A milestone."--TIME

"Wonderfully moving and entertaining."--Clive Barnes, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"I advise anybody who is interested in the human condition, black or white, to read it."--NEWSDAY
