When Lorraine Hansberry’s play “A Raisin in the Sun” debuted on Broadway in 1959, author James Baldwin said he had “never in [his] life seen so many black people in the theater.” “... [N]ever before, in the entire history of the American theater, had so much of the truth of black people’s lives been seen on the stage,” Baldwin wrote. “Black people had ignored the theater because the theater had always ignored them.” On Monday, the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation and the Historic Landmarks Preservation Center unveiled a plaque honoring Hansberry outside the Greenwich Village townhouse she once owned.

@Regranned from @ericbanthony - Um, yeah...because Saturday night was something else! I decided at 7:30pm to rush over to the Mark Taper Forum to see if I could get a reasonably priced last minute ticket to see my homie @octarell_again's play #HeadOfPasses, which I had heard nothing but great reviews for. Well, at 7:52pm, I stopped by the box office, and was happy to spend $35 on a really great seat. I take my seat, and for the next 2hrs, I'm transported to a house near the Head of Passes, where the Mississippi River meets the Gulf of Mexico. This play is so full, of talent, artistry, nuance, heartbreak, laughter, family issues, GOD, faith...honestly, this post will do it no justice. The show closes here in LA this Sunday, I suggest that you not miss it!
Phylicia Rashad gives a tour-de-force performance, I mean it, like one of the most brilliant performances I've ever witnessed in my life. I've been fortunate enough to see her work on Broadway in #AugustWilson's #GemOfTheOcean, #LorraineHansberry's #ARaisinInTheSun, and #TennesseeWilliams' #CatOnAHotTinRoof. Saturday night, she did work that topped all of those performances for me. Ms. Rashad is a national treasure; I was so happy to meet her, and tell her that!

So, I'm sitting in the green room post-show, to congratulate my friends who are in the play, and I get a chance to meet Condola Rashad; who decided to surprise her mother, and came in from NYC to see the show that night. What a sweet, humble, and exceptionally beautiful soul she is.

I spent my Saturday night with the Rashads, and it was magnificent!

Day 6 of #GracefullyStrongYogis2 is #seatedpose

Excited to share this sneak preview. Join us today for the public unveiling of our latest #historicplaque #culturalmedallion to recognize and honor #LorraineHanseberry in #GreenwichVillage #civilrights #waverlyplace  With great guest speakers. Starts at 5pm, please RSVP at gvshp.org/events #blacklivesmatter

Day 14: LORRAINE HANSBERRY. She was the first black, female to have a play performed on Broadway. Her most famous work, A Raisin in the Sun, depicted the struggle of a black family and highlighted the oppression, racism and segregation they faced. Hansberry was inspired by the poem "Harlem" written by Langston Hughes... "What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?"

We can officially announce that Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart will have its national PBS broadcast premiere on Friday, January 19, 2018 at 9pm* ET on @pbsamericanmasters!

Slighted Eye/Feeling Heart (2017). To be Young, Gifted and Black, is an amazing but yet terrifying space to occupied in society. Especially in a world that fetishizes youth, that is intimidated by intelligence and despises Blackness. One is left to carry the societal baggage of these three functions, while somehow effectively living a "normal" life. This film does a fantastic job of exploring the particular feelings of alienation and anxiety that all young bright Black people experience on the daily. The constant feeling of being misunderstood. The negative effects of Hansberry's uncompromising brilliance on her romantic, professional, personal and social life is something that even I as a heterosexual man can deeply relate to. Amazing film🙌🏿 #lorrainehansberry #blackwomen #younggiftedandblack #blackexcellence #gifted #writing #documentary #writersofinstagram #writerslife #thecurse #smartass #godblessamerica #film #tiff #cinema #pbs

Les Blancs is an unfinished play written by Lorraine Hansberry. Still would love to see this play and also a film adaptation would be great! She considered it one of her most important works. Her ex-husband completed it for her. #blacknerds #blacknerd #nerdtv #blacknerdtakeover #blerds #blerdlife #blerdvision #blerdness #blackboyjoy #blackgirlmagic #keloid #blackwebseries #seriesforblacknerds #filmforblerds #filmblerd #blerdgang #blerd #lesblancs #lorrainehansberry

"Do I remain a revolutionary? Intellectually -- without a doubt. But am I prepared to give my body to the struggle or even my comforts? This is what I puzzle about."
