She’s the first African-American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in drama and Suzan-Lori Parks is staying pretty busy, staging four shows this theater season, with three of them in New York.

One of Parks’ four shows will be a musical adaptation of the reggae hit “The Harder They Come.”

The playwright is a writer in residence at the Public Theater. She doesn’t just write for the stage. Parks wrote the screenplay for “The United States Versus Billie Holiday.” She was also a writer and executive producer on “Genius: Aretha.”

But for this changemaker, theater remains a constant. Tamsen Fadal has more in the video.
