    In the late 1950s, Lorraine Hansberry wrote “A Raisin in the Sun,” a play about the struggles of an ordinary black family on Chicago’s South Side, and became the first female African-American playwright to be produced on Broadway. Nearly six decades later her acclaimed, groundbreaking play remains a beloved theatrical jewel, but the fascinating story of its author is not widely known.

    In Sighted Eyes|Feeling Heart, award-winning filmmaker Tracy Heather Strain explores the influences, life and work of this passionate writer and civil-rights advocate. Through interviews with those who knew her best, rare archival material, and the journals of the writer herself, Sighted Eyes|Feeling Heart, creates a nuanced portrait of an activist and artist whose words and ideas are as relevant today as they were then.
