Lorraine Hansberry, born May 19,1930, would have turned 90 years old this week. We are honored to house the Lorraine Hansberry Papers at the Schomburg Center. Hansberry's archive has been the source for many researchers whose work has culminated in award winning books, films, exhibitions, forthcoming works, and more.
Join us in rewatching this 2018 conversation with Imani Perry and Eddie Glaude, Jr, discussing Perry's research on Lorraine Hansberry and her book Looking for Lorraine: The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry.
