    1. Bumped this to four stars for the raw talent of Hansberry, but overall what's presented is a 3.Les Blancs is a fascinating play, particularly considering how forward thinking it was (Hansberry was a true visionary, in my opinion). It's a story about the clash of civilizations, expectations, and family played out in the war for African independence. The themes are mostly deftly handled and deeply felt. However, unfortunately, Hansberry died before completing the play, and it was finished by her e [...]


    2. Wrote on the title play for my master's degree. Easily one of the most complex texts about race in the United States I've ever read.


    3. I found this play to be quite hopeless. It offers the white side and the black side, but no grey area so no compromise or resolution seems possible. I was left unattached to characters that I think were supposed to be the saviors of the argument. If I had trusted them or cared about them, their individuality might have been beacons of hope for the future of race relations in Africa. I wonder what parts of the play were written by Hansberry herself, and which were added posthumously I read this p [...]


    4. I picked this up in order to read The Drinking Gourd, a screenplay created for television. Commissioned by one of the major networks to inaugurate a commemorative series to mark 100th anniversary of the Civil War, this was never produced, despite positive comments by TV execs. Politics seem to have gotten in the way So I read this in my interest to understand that racial politics of the 1960s and to see a different type of source on my perpetual issue of teaching slavery through literature. (For [...]


    5. Want to understand colonialism? Want to stop being a liberal? Want to have your life changed? Want to really, fully, truly confront the brutality of human history? Want to end it all with a glimmer of hope? Start here


    6. [[NB: A Review of 'Les Blancs' and not the entire book]]Lorraine Hansberry created a storm. All reviews of this play must begin and end here: the playwright initiated a storm — it is her trademark. Not only is it her trademark, it is also the only way to describe what happened when Les Blancs opened on Broadway in November 1970, five years after Hansberry’s death from cancer. One critic, Arthur Sainer, described an audience feeling something at stake that talks about the condition of human b [...]


    7. Wow, Lorraine Hansberry is amazing! It's a shame that most people only know her play Raisin in the Sun. That's a fine first play, but she went so much deeper than that later on. And she died young so we missed out on more that she could have done. This book has a great range of later plays: Les Blancs, which is set in Africa and brilliantly exposes the hypocrisy and inconsistency of whites fighting independence struggles there; The Drinking Gourd, which focuses on the reality of American slavery [...]


    8. So far of the plays in this book, I've only read "Les Blancs," which I sought out after coming across a quotation from the play in another book I was reading (which exactly I can't remember). I haven't fully processed it. I hadn't read a play in a very long time and enjoyed the format, along with the content, which brings up a lot of important issues.


    9. I only read Les Blancs and not the other two plays but it was enjoyable. Not very touching, smart and clever and everything but there is something that keeps one distant from it and I don't know why.
