The family moved to New York City so Kennedy could attend graduate school at Columbia University. That is where she developed her literary talents by attended creative writing, but after seven years she still remained unpublished and unproduced even though she completed her M.A. She travelled with her husband, by then a professor at Hunter College, to Europe and Africa in 1960 and in Ghana she submitted a short story to the magazine Black Orpheus which was accepted and published. At the age of 29 she wrote Funnyhouse of a Negro (1962) and it was selected by Edward Albee to be produced in his workshop at Circle in the Square. This play is about a young black woman who is so lost in the myths of the black and white race that she feels vulnerable and without any identity.

Samira Oral History The interview I read about was a female named Lois Ahrens who lived in Northampton with her partner and whose interest is politics. Moreover, she was born in 1947 right after the world war two and grew up in a working class family in Brooklyn New York. Especially, her uncle and aunt were politically active people in the 30s which inspired her more towards it. Moreover, in her interview she talks how most of his relatives died in the war, in addition it wasn’t surprising/shocking for her because most of the people surrounding her also lost relatives in the war. Since she was Jewish his family went through bad phase in their lives just like any other Jewish did during those years.
“Two Trains Running” I’ve chosen to write my paper on August Wilson’s “Two Trains Running.” I saw the play at the Geva Theater in Rochester, New York with a friend of mine who is from Liberia. My friend was writing a paper on the early experiences of African Americans in the United States and wanted to get a sense of their lives and struggles. She had already seen a production of “Fences” at a local school and decided to see “Two Trains Running.” when it came to Geva as part of the theater’s five year commitment to run Wilson’s ten plays from his “cycle of plays.” I agreed to accompany my friend because I read Wilson’s “The Piano Lesson” several years ago and I enjoyed it very much. Catching a production of “Two Trains Running” would not only allow me to enjoy another of his works, but experience it first-hand as well. August Wilson, born Frederick August Kittle, grew up in the Hill District of Pittsburgh to a white father and a black mother (Kiffer, 2009, April 9).
