Lorraine Hansberry wrote of Black consciousness before it was fashionable, but she bequeathed to all of us a legacy astounding in its richness and relevancy. Few writers, black or white, are more relevant to present-day America than Lorraine Hansberry.

Here, for the first time, Caedmon has gathered many of her plays, interviews, and speeches into one unforgettable collection.

"A Raisin in the Sun: " an emotionally lacerating landmark of modem American theatre. A full-cast production starring Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis.

"To Be Young, Gifted and Black: "a glowing, vibrant, searing and, at the same time, redemptively joyous self-portrait. A full-cast production starring James Earl Jones.

"Lorraine Hansberry Speaks Out: " seven interviews and speeches, recorded between 1959 and 1964, that range in topic from integration to backlash to the greatness and limitations of AfricanAmerican leadership.
