Quote of the Day (Lorraine Hansberry, on ‘The Worship of Despair’)

“I am one who considers the worship of Despair a pointless and, I must add, a rather boring pursuit."—African-American playwright Lorraine Hansberry (1930-1965), letter of Apr. 4, 1960, to Jaroslav Chuchvalec of Czechoslovakia, included in To be Young, Gifted, and Black: Lorraine Hansberry in Her Own Words, edited by Robert Nemiroff (1970)
