Boilerplate (Long):

During her all-too-brief life and career, Lorraine Hansberry left an indelible mark on the American theater. Goodman Theatre proudly presents The Lorraine Hansberry Celebration, a series of programs and performances that focus on the author’s Chicago roots, the forces which shaped her groundbreaking work and her remarkable legacy.

In addition to readings, scholarly analyses of her work and other events designed to highlight her life and career, the celebration will culminate in two major events:

Lorraine Hansberry Day on May 19, commemorating what would have been Hansberry’s 86th birthday.

The Lorraine Hansberry Awards on May 24, honoring six African American women, all natives of Chicago and contemporaries of Hansberry, whose work helped transform the American theater. Presented at the Chicago Cultural Center, this special awards ceremony will be hosted by Chicago artists, members of Hansberry’s family and representatives from the Lorraine Hansberry Literary Trust.
