#wcw Lorraine Hansberry #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

Celebrate her! We acknowledge African-American Writer and playwright, #LorraineHansberry's Born Day today! Happy Birthday Lorraine ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿพ #WeAreCASSIUS #CASSIUSbirthdays #Unapologetic

"I sit at this desk for hours and hours and sharpen pencils and smoke cigarettes and switch from play to playโ€”Sidney, Touissant, Les Blancs andโ€”nothing happens. I begin to think more and more of doing something else with my life while I am still young. I mean, almost anythingโ€”driving an ambulance in Angola or running a ski lodge in upstate New York, instead of this endless struggle. I expect the theatre will kill me." Lorraine Hansberry, Journal entry, September 16, 1964. #LesBlancsLA

Finally got around to watching this.
Gives an alternative, raw perspective on the the Civil Rights Movement and some of it's leaders.
Give it a watch if you haven't already. 'I am terrified at the moral apathy, the death of the heart, which is happening in my country. These people have deluded themselves for so long, that they really don't think I'm human.
I Base this on their conduct, not on what they say. And this means that they have become, in themselves, moral monsters. - James Baldwin

I had the opportunity to see Les Blancs by Lorraine Hansberry and directed by one of my favorite people, Gregg T. Daniel. These handsome gents, fellow Juillard alum @deseanterry and Jonathan Sims were superb. The entire cast slayed me. Ms. Hansberry was way ahead of her time. What an honor to witness a company of artists giving themselves so fully to richly complex ideas. Bravo. The opening sequence alone is worth the price of admission. It closes 7/31. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

Ran into these awesome actors when we all went to see #LesBlancs at @roguemachinetheatre. Kudos to @billbrochtrup, Anne Gee Byrd, Joel Swetow and the rest of the fantastic cast!! They still have a few more weeks - don't miss this one!

MAMA: There is always something left to love. And if you ain't learned that, you ain't learned nothing. (Looking at her) Have you cried for that boy today? I don't mean for yourself and for the family 'cause we lost the money. I mean for him: what he been through and what it done to him. Child, when do you think is the time to love somebody the most? When they done good and made things easy for everybody? Well then, you ain't through learning because that ain't the time at all. It's when he's at his lowest and can't believe in his- self 'cause the world done whipped him so! When you starts measuring somebody, measure him right, child, measure him right. Make sure you done taken into ac- count what hills and valleys he come through before he got to wherever he is.
