Great Performances: To Be Young, Gifted, and Black

A theatrical adaptation of the eloquent young black playwright, Lorraine Hansberry; whose first play, "A Raisin in the Sun," brought her international acclaim; and whose short life, ending in her death at 34 in 1965, was filled with a rebellious quest for freedom. Based on her diaries, letters, and portions of her plays; woven together by her husband, Robert Nemiroff.
