  • A Raisin in the Sun


    A Raisin in the Sun is a play by Lorainne Hansberry that tells the tale of the Youngers, who are poor African Americans on Chicago's south-side. After receiving a substantial check from their father's life insurance policy, the family's conflicting ideas on what to do with the money lead to turmoil in the household. The family must decide between Walter's "get rich quick" schemes or moving into a white suburban neighborhood, and learn the importance of sticking together as family along the way.
