This new edition of To Be Young, Gifted and Black includes a new Preface by Jewell Handy Gresham Nemiroff and James Baldwin's Introduction to the first edition. Assembled from Hansberry's plays, essays, letters, drawings, and photographs, To Be Young, Gifted and Black records a life of passionate engagement and spectacular accomplishment. It follows the author from her childhood in Chicago (where her family encountered vicious resistance when it moved into a white neighborhood), through her arrival in New York, where the triumph of A Raisin in the Sun made her famous virtually overnight, to her death at the tragically early age of thirty-four. With this book, which inspired a play that has been performed almost as often as Raisin itself, Hansberry transformed her own life story into a work that has moved and inspired a generation of readers.
