Jimmy and Lorraine is a meditation on the American political climate of the late 50’s and early 60’s through the lens of two significant artists of the time, James Baldwin and Lorraine Hansberry. HartBeat Ensemble members, writer Talvin Wilks and director Brian Jennings develop this new work and explore the lives of these two artists and social activists. Through insights from Jimmy and Lorraine, this new play hopes to hold up a mirror to America’s history and shed light on the issues of race, art and politics in an ever-changing multicultural society.
