Reviews

"This scholarly biography hits the mark as a fresh and timely portrait of an influential playwright."--Publishers Weekly

"Colbert makes the study of Hansberry's literary work inseparable from her lived experience of complicating identity categories. This exquisite biography of Hansberry is groundbreaking."--Margo Natalie Crawford, University of Pennsylvania

"Colbert offers a luminous, Black feminist study of the life of the mind of one of our most formidable cultural intellectuals. Combining dazzling archival research with rigorous and expansive close-readings of rare documents and Hansberry's rich range of dramatic works, Radical Vision attests to the fact that the world of the Black woman artist is 'a story of ideas' urgently in need of telling."--Daphne A. Brooks, author of Liner Notes for the Revolution

"A rich narrative that takes readers on a journey through Hansberry's intellectual life, as she reckons with some of the most difficult aesthetic and political problems of her time--and ours."--Paige A. McGinley, Washington University in St. Louis
