She’s Got Harlem on Her Mind gives audiences a window into everyday life in Harlem in the 1920s through the eyes of an author regarded by Joseph Papp, founder of The Public Theater, as his life’s “most influential force”. In The Starter, hopeful and hard-working T.J. and Georgia may or may not negotiate their engagement; in Hot Stuff, jaded numbers runner Fanny King makes a series of bad bets and owes nearly everything she has to lose; and in The Hunch, a starry-eyed fiancée getting some unwelcome but much-needed clarity from a devoted admirer. Each play earned prizes from leading magazines of Black culture in 1927: The Starter and The Hunch from the National Urban League's journal Opportunity, and Hot Stuff from W.E.B. DuBois's The Crisis.
