From Tracy Heather Strain 

d8ee519d614116922433d085d16f31b2_largeHello. I am a alumni of WGBH, and I am writing about my Kickstarter campaign.

The project is the first feature length documentary about Lorraine Hansberry, the artist and activist who is best known for writing A RAISIN IN THE SUN. This is the first independent production for me and my husband/partner Randall MacLowry, and we’ve been working on it part-time for the last nine years between commissioned films for AMERICAN EXPERIENCE and a NOVA.

The campaign ends Friday evening at 8:57pm EDT, and though we’ve made our initial goal, we are pushing forward to our stretch goals and to spread awareness of this project. Instead of spending time here to summarize the project, its history, the team so far, or my motivation for undertaking this nine year adventure, I invite you to head straight to my campaign page where it is all explained:

We’ve been blessed to have some helpful press about the project and campaign:

Thank you for your time, consideration and help!
