A Raisin in the Sun

Details

by Lorraine Hansberry

On the south side of 1950’s Chicago, Mama Lena Younger dreams of using her dead husband’s insurance money to move her family to a new home in a better neighborhood, but her son Walter Lee wants to buy a liquor store and be his own man, while her daughter Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face in their heroic struggle to retain their dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
