Abstract

When Lorraine Hansberry's second produced play, The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window, opened on Broadway in 1964, some white critics expressed surprise that her protagonist was Jewish rather than black and some blacks were disappointed or even outraged by this, feeling that she was deserting the "cause" and trying too hard to win acclaim as a "universal" writer.[1] Others from both groups, of course, warmly defended her.
