New Rochelle, NY 10801 [[/advertisement]] [[end page]] [[start page]] [[double line]] [[image - black & white photograph of Lorraine Hansberry]] LORRAINE HANSBERRY When Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun appeared on Broadway in 1959, the artist became at 29 the youngest American playwright, the fifth woman and the only African American to date to win the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play of the Year. The play represented a landmark. In its authentic depiction of Black American life and the vivid demonstration of so gifted a creator, cast and director, A Raisin in the Sun made it impossible for the American state to ignore African-American creativity and subject matter thereafter. In 1961, the film version won a special award at the Cannes Film Festival, and the screenplay written by Hansberry was nominated for a Screen Writers Guild Award. In 1965, Lorraine Hansberry died of cancer at age 34. As if prescient, in the six years she had between the triumph of her first play and her death, she was extraordinarily prolific. Her second play to be produced on Broadway, The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window, ran to mixed reviews and closed on the night that she died. To be Young, Gifted and Black, an autobiographical portrait in her own words, was posthumously produced in 1968 and won the record for longest Off-Broadway running drama, subsequently touring across the country. In 1970, Les Blancs, her play about the inevitability of struggle between colonizers and colonized in Africa and the impending crisis that would surely grow out of it, ran on Broadway to critical acclaim. A Raisin in the Sun has been translated on all continents and in more than 30 languages, and performed in numerous productions abroad In the U.S., in over 45 years, through stage, film, television and book publications, literally millions of people have had some acquaintance [line] [[advertisement]] What we do together makes a difference.
