“Art is Energy”: Lorraine Hansberry, World Builder

Curated for BAM by Soyica Diggs Colbert

'Art is Energy': Lorraine Hansberry, World Builder presents, some for the first time, photographs, letters, recordings, and published and unpublished writing of Lorraine Hansberry. The exhibit mixes mediums to evocatively capture Hansberry's multiplicity–the world that she inhabited and the one she created in "The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window. The exhibition was curated by Soyica Diggs Colbert and made possible through generous partnerships with Joi Gresham and the Lorraine Hansberry Literary Trust as well as the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
