A new exhibition, “Twice Militant: Lorraine Hansberry’s Letters to The Ladder” examines a lesser-known aspect of the life of the award-winning author of the landmark play A Raisin in the Sun, who died in 1965 at the age of thirty-four. The exhibition features documents and publications addressing Hansberry’s identification as a feminist and a lesbian, and will be on view in the Herstory Gallery of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art from November 22, 2013, through March 16, 2014.


Screening tonight in Toronto! On Friday, September 8, 2017, the world premiere of SIGHTED EYES: FEELING HEART: LORRAINE HANSBERRY, a documentary on playwright Lorraine Hansberry, opens at the Toronto International Film Festival.
