About Us

The "Lorraine Vivian Hansberry" site began development on January 25, 2014.

Objectives:

The objective is to give light to her work all within the principals she held. The platform of which she delivered her message through her art and activism, will be presented in part by those who were closest to her. Lorraine Hansberry was a product of a generation from the 50s and 60s where African Americans held great respect for themselves. They fostered a concerted effort to obtain equality, united organized non violent protests and did not allow themselves to be exploited by the media nor governmental agencies.
