What to watch on TV. I wasn’t aware of this program. When I recorded something else this played back instead – Lorraine Hansberry: American Masters. It was much better than tSara’s Weeknight Meals!

On March 11, 1959, Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun opened on Broadway and changed the face of American theater forever. Depicting the limitations of the American dream through the lives of a black family on Chicago’s South Side, the plays richly drawn characters and unprecedented subject matter attracted record crowds and earned it the coveted top prize from the New York Drama Critics Circle. In this new documentary, award-winning filmmaker Tracy Heather Strain examines Hansberry’s life and work using a remarkable collection of archival footage, home movies, rare photos and unpublished documents.
