About the course

She was an African American playwright born on the south side of Chicago, just like me. I learned about her in college in a theater class, and although I was familiar with “A Raisin in the Sun,” written by Hansberry, I didn’t know much about her. I quickly devoured her works and was struck by a particular opening line from another one of her pieces titled “To Be Young, Gifted and Black.” The line read, “I was born on the south side of Chicago. I was born black and a female.” It was the first time I read something by an artist and thought, “Me too!” She achieved so much and made a lasting impression in the arts. I’m not a playwright, but I’ve worked to build a career that supports and helps Chicago artists to leave a lasting imprint on the world.
