Lorraine Hansberry: More Than A Raisin
In the summer of 2019, Erin was chosen to be a a part of the highly selective Summer Scholar Program at Ithaca College. She engaged in research and wrote a biographical one-woman, play about Lorraine Hansberry and her life as a playwright and activist. Through her research and playwriting, she unearthed Hansberry's deeply intellectual, humours, and rebellious nature. In October, 2019, Erin presented her findings and some of her original monologues at the National Statera Women's Art Conference in NYC.
The session included a detailed presentation on what her research showed her about what it means to be a young, ambitious woman of color and how to benefit the world around you.
