19 May Happy Birthday Blog: Lorraine Hansberry
Today we’re delighted to celebrate the life and legacy of Lorraine Hansberry. Born on this day in 1930 in Chicago, Illinois, she is most know for authoring the play ‘A Raisin in the Sun.’ Though she was the first Black woman to have a play on Broadway, Hansberry’s contribution to society goes much further than that. We’re including the trailer for the 2018 documentary ‘Lorraine Hansberry: Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart’ to whet your appetites.
