Lorraine Hansberry

17 Feb

Wednesday’s post subject Langston Hughes inspired today’s post subject Lorraine Hansberry? Can you guess why?

To learn more about Hansberry, check out Perspectives in American Literature for a biography, primary works, and a bibliography.

Should you find yourself in San Francisco consider visiting the Lorainne Hansberry Theatre.

You can check out her neighborhood here as well as other prominent Chicago residents.

Have you seen the 1961 movie starring Sidney Poitier? If you haven’t yet, I strongly recommend it. Sidney Poitier is an amazing Walter Lee Younger. Has anyone seen the 2008 version with Diddy? What did you think?
