Say the name "Lorraine Hansberry" - and probably what comes to mind is the play "A Raisin in the Sun".  Ms. Hansberry was the first African American woman to write a play performed on Broadway.  But did you know that she was also the granddaughter of a freed slave?  Or that she was very active in the civil rights movement?  Or that she wrote of her lesbian lifestyle under her initials only so she would not face discrimination? On the next Another View we explore the life and times of this literary giant with awarding winning actor, director and artistic director of the Norfolk State University Theatre Company, Mr. Anthony Mark Stockard.  Join us for an Another View History Lesson on Lorraine Hansberry, Friday, January 5 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
