Gal Pals Watch Lorraine Hansberry: Sighted Eyes Feeling Heart

February 14, 2020
Episode 56: Sighted Eyes, Feeling Heart
 
Helloooo literary lez's and otherwise identified queers! Have you read the book Looking for Lorraine by Imani Perry? Because you should. But you can also watch this pretty good, very PBS style doc about Lorraine Hansberry, aka one of the baddest/best humans ever to be too good for America. If you don't know, Hansberry wrote the 1959 play A Raisin in the Sun, which you probably read in high school, and was a huge hit and made into a movie. But tbh that was the least of her amazingness. She was a true queen. Also, she was queer af. Listen in to hear us talk about this movie, the book Looking for Lorraine (which is much gayer, and also one of Sarah's favorite books of all time), and how much we stan this communist activist legend. Enjoy!
