Meet #BlackHistoryMonth role model, #LorraineHansberry ❤️ Did you know she was the first black woman to write a play performed on #Broadway? 🎭 #inspiring

My office, where I create and give life. And behind me, a picture of #lorrainehansberry, a brilliant woman who inspires me. #equality @nike

Celebrate her! We acknowledge African-American Writer and playwright, #LorraineHansberry's Born Day today! Happy Birthday Lorraine 👸🏽✊🏾 #WeAreCASSIUS #CASSIUSbirthdays #Unapologetic

If you were born today... you have some serious reasons to be inspired and some serious shoes to fill. Happy birthday to both the great #LorraineHansberry and brother #MalcolmX. I can't imagine a world without the teachings of both of you. Celebrating you every single day. ✊🏿🙏🏿✊🏿

#LorraineHansberry, photographed by #davidattis in her #greenwichvillage apartment for #voguemagazine. We are shown how a successful woman lives - and what she wears to write.
Her image repeated on the wall behind her, she is surrounded by the attributes of her skills and influence - her desk piled with papers, a figure she sculpted at university, and a pen held in hand as she interacts with her audience.
And her writing clothes? - easy, American separates - chinos, a mustard and black patterned top and what Vogue describes as 'white, beat sneakers.'

#Malcolmx #lorrainehansberry

The term coined by #LorraineHansberry and immortalized by #NinaSimone, the latter, who boldly reminded an audience before she performed the song that "My people need all the inspiration and love they can get". Because so many of us need to be reminded of who we are and what we're capable of doing. There really is a world waiting just for you, simply daring you to challenge it. Don't back down, ever! You are young, gifted and black. And that's a fact! #BlackGold #SelfLove #Freedom

Poet Elsa Gidlow lived in Chelsea, at 447 West 22nd Street, when she wrote "On a Grey Thread" (1923), believed to be the first book of openly lesbian poems to be published in North America. ⠀

From Lillian Wald’s founding of a public health facility for the poor, to Berenice Abbott’s photographs of a changing city, to Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking play "A Raisin in the Sun," lesbians have left an indelible mark on New York City since at least the mid-19th century.⠀
