Lorraine Hansberry is justly famous for her skills as a playwright and her political activitsm, but few realize that she was also a Villager! Hansberry lived in the Village starting in 1953 and used the area to inspire her later work, such as the play “The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window.” Join historian Michele Mitchell as she delves into Hansberry’s enduring legacy as author of “A Raisin in the Sun” as part of GVSHP’s celebration of Black History Month.
