(Original Caption) 3/25/1959-New York: Lorraine Hansberry, author of the latest Broadway dramatic hit, "A Raisin In The Sun," is shown above in a recent portrait. A negro, Miss Hansberry is the first woman of her race to have a play presented on Broadway. The 28-year-old playwright said she first came here with the intention of being a painter, but decided that she just "didn't have it." So, she said, "I just told myself that I was a playwright and began working at it." (ORIGINAL CAPTION).
