November Book Club Selection:  Looking for Lorraine: The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry by Imani Perry

Most of us are familiar with the play “A Raisin in the Sun,” which ran on Broadway when Lorraine Hansberry was only 29. For most, our knowledge about her has pretty much ended with that, perhaps because she died quite young at 34 of pancreatic cancer.

Princeton professor Imani Perry provides a more expansive portrait of Hansberry in her book published in 2018. “She’s much more than that play,” Perry declares. “She was a feminist before the feminist movement. She identified as a lesbian and thought about LGBT organizing before there was a gay rights movement.”
