Contribution: $25.00

Product Code: OC1011

Biographer Margaret Wilkerson, Professor Emerita of African American Studies at
the University of California/Berkeley, discusses Hanberry's significance to the
debates surrounding the Civil Rights Movement, and an often overlooked part of
her life: her lesbianism, her affiliation with the Daughters of Bilitis, an
early lesbian rights organization, and her letters to the organization’s
magazine. Wilkerson has discovered previously unpublished writings of Hansberry
that deal with lesbian topics.
