She is the first African-American woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize in Drama for the Broadway hit “Topdog/Underdog” and was named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Innovators for the Next New Wave.” In addition to her extensive playwriting bibliography, including many experimental works, Parks has written screenplays for Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, including Girl 6 written for Spike Lee, and adapted Zora Neale Hurston’s clas­sic novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God.” The iconic writer James Baldwin declared Parks “an astonishing and beautiful creature who may become one of the most valuable artists of our time.”
