Celebrate Lorraine Hansberry’s Legacy

The Lorraine Hansberry Coalition (LHC), established in February 2022, is part of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee of Croton-on-Hudson, NY. It is dedicated to celebrating the life of acclaimed playwright, author, and activist Lorraine Hansberry and her connection with Croton-on-Hudson. A volunteer-driven group, we create innovative and inclusive opportunities that reflect the values and ideals by which Hansberry led her life, and welcome new members to join!
