This study highlights the unkind actions some people take against one another, which are perceived as forms of social rejection. Sanchez intends to show how, if African art techniques were used and adapted, people may view black radical art. The relationship between blacks and whites is frequently bad and increasing harsher, particularly when it is driven by immoral personal objectives. In the majority of her literary works, Sanchez looks for environments that are safe, egalitarian, amiable, and respectful in an effort to eliminate the seeds of racial discrimination. She is a fearless poet and dramatist who has worked hard to instill in her black community a true sense of equality and respect. She has, therefore, committed the majority of her poetry and plays to defending the rights of her community, particularly those of black women. The dramatic dialogue between the characters in Sanchez's play Dirty Hearts is used to express the playwright's concealed intentions as an attempt to achieve her aim of equality. Her main purpose is to show that everyone in the society is moving towards equality in order to assure their ability to live comfortably. While some argued for black unity, in her opinion, Women were given inferior treatment. Several of Sanchez's plays questioned the motives of black male leadership in this context. In order t o promote the chance that she will be able to propagandize for or offer a solution for the inferiority of her black people in a predominately American white culture, Sanchez quietly exploits the idea of egalitarianism throughout this drama.
