Lorraine Hansberry’s Pan-Africanist Drama and Haitian Revolution Opera (for Wesley Brown)
I engage the pan-Africanist drama of Lorraine Hansberry to talk about questions of scale, leadership, internationalism, and gender in her work. I pay attention to her play Les Blancs as it relates to the formulation of “the reluctant warrior” à la Assata Shakur as well as how Hansberry’s Haitian Revolution opera relates to world systems theory.
