A Raisin in the Sun
About A Raisin in the Sun
In pre-civil rights America, an unexpected windfall offers a life-changing option for the Youngers, an African-American family living in a cramped Chicago apartment. The Youngers struggle with competing dreams and racial intolerance in Lorraine Hansberry’s seminal work, which remains a resonant story of hope and the need to retain dignity in a hostile world.
