Event Details

Join us for an engaging panel discussion about imposing gay and lesbian labels on public figures who never publicly identified as such. This conversation centers on playwright, activist and intellectual, Lorraine Hansberry. Panelists include Joi Gresham, Alexis de Veaux, Steven G. Fullwood, and moderator Shawn(ta) Smith.

 

Lorraine Hansberry was born on May 19, 1930, in Chicago, Illinois. She wroteA Raisin in the Sun, a play about a struggling black family, which opened on Broadway to great success. Hansberry was the first black playwright and the youngest American to win a New York Critics’ Circle award.
