As I continue to get ready for my upcoming Jazz and Civil Rights exhibition in March at the Theatrical Outfit in ATL, I have completed a Lorraine Hansberry portrait. Lorraine inspired Nina Simone to write the song "To Be Young, Gifted and Black". She wrote the play "A Rasin in the Sun", a play about racial segregation in Chicago. The title of the play was taken from the Langston Huges poem, "Harlem". She died at age 35. #lorrainehansberry #ninasimone #tobeyounggiftedandblack #harlem #love
