The life and career of this groundbreaking African-American playwright, the first African American to achieve critical and popular success on Broadway, is detailed. Her play, A Raisin in the Sun, the first play to depict a realistic African-American family struggling, has become a classic of the theater. A native of racially segregated Chicago, Hansberry also used her place in the public eye to help advance the cause of racial equality.
