To mark International Women’s Day, we screen a new documentary feature about Lorraine Hansberry, whose play Raisin in the Sun was the first by a black woman to be produced on Broadway. A passionate artist, she was also a committed activist and sought-after intellectual who waged an outspoken and defiant battle against injustice in 20th-century America.
