The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry
An intimate look into the life and writings of a young Black woman who altered the world
[Starred Review] “Perry seeks to deepen our appreciation in this richly dimensional portrait of a brightly blazing artist, thinker, and activist . . . . Perry’s ardent, expert, and redefining work of biographical discovery brings light, warmth, scope, and enlightening complexity to the spine-straightening story of a brilliant, courageous, seminal, and essential American writer.” - Booklist
