Act One & Black History Month

Act One continues honoring Black history with presenting part one of Lorraine Hansbury’s "A Raisin in the Sun."

Lorraine Hansberry (1930-1965) was the youngest American playwright ever to win the Best American Play Award from the New Your Drama Critic’s Circle. She wrote of Black consciousness before it was fashionable, but she bequeathed to all of us a legacy astounding in its richness and relevancy. Few writers, black or white, are more relevant to present-day America than Lorraine Hansberry.

A Raisin in the Sun is an emotionally lacerating landmark of modern American Theatre. A full cast production starring the beloved Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis.
