    *On this date in 1959 "A Raisin in the Sun," became the first Broadway play written by a Black woman.

    The show opened at the Barrymore Theater with Sidney Poitier and Claudia McNeil in the starring roles. Lorraine Hansberry’s drama ran for 530 performances and received the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award.
