Movie Info

Many will know her as the writer who graced the world with the classic play A Raisin in the Sun. Others who were alive in the '50s and '60s will remember her as an outspoken social activist and intellectual who rubbed shoulders with James Baldwin, Harry Belafonte and others changing the course of race relations in America. All facets of Lorraine Hansberry's public life, private romances and early death are on view in this beguiling and illuminating documentary, which is perfectly assembled by filmmaker Tracy Heather Strain. Voice-overs by Tony Award-winning actor Anika Noni Rose and interviews with Ruby Dee, Lorraine's sister Mamie Hansberry and others who loved her evoke her glory.

Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart, fourteen years in the making, is a great example of a work that thoughtfully and creatively layers ideas about gender and sexuality alongside race.

Sighted Eyes is meticulously researched, well assembled, and has most of the appropriate expert commentary.

The story of Lorraine Hansberry told in this way, reminded me of how there are so many stories, "Hidden Figures" stories if you will, of Black women in history that we know so little about.

A must-have for American studies collections in high schools and colleges, and for PBS viewers, it's one to look out for.
