A RAISIN IN THE SUN
By Lorraine Hansberry

Set on Chicago’s South Side in the 1950s, Raisin revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the African American Younger family: son Walter Lee, his wife Ruth, his sister Beneatha, his son Travis, and Matriarch Lena. When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other dreams. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
