LisaGay Hamilton narrates the biography of the extraordinary black playwright Lorraine Hansberry, who wrote the acclaimed play A RAISIN IN THE SUN. Hansberry accomplished much in her short 34 years on earth, and the steady cadence of Hamilton's voice creates a mellow, informative, and poised narration of her story. Hamilton is not only informing the listener but also teaching and, most of all, sharing the uncommon details that shaped this energetic woman. Hansberry was passionate, active, and charismatic, especially when it came to the African-American community. Hamilton's calm tone is unchanging, even while describing Hansberry's colorful close relationships with artists James Baldwin and Nina Simone. This audiobook is like watching a documentary of someone paving the way for future artist-activists. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2018]
