"The thing that makes you exceptional, if you are at all, is inevitably that which must also make you lonely".~Lorraine Hansberry, American Playwright who wrote the play, A Raisin in the Sun (1950)
Lorraine Vivian Hansberry the 3rd (May 19, 1930 – January 12, 1965) was an African American playwright and author of political speeches, letters, and essays. Her best known work, A Raisin in the Sun, was inspired by her family's battle against racial segregation in Chicago. (taken from Wikipedia)
She studied at the University of Madison, WI (gotta promote my home state of Wi once again).
