1. Award-winning playwright Lorraine Hansberry was the first African-American woman to have a play produced on Broadway. Today NYPL is honored to celebrate her legacy with our new pop-up display at the 42nd Street Library - A Raisin in the Sun: Lorraine Hansberry’s Dream on Broadway, sponsored by TD Bank. See the original manuscript, congratulatory telegrams from Langston Hughes and others, and more today!
