Script Club: A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Widely acknowledged as one of the best plays in the American canon, Hansberry’s 1959 groundbreaking classic explores the many challenges Blacks faced with housing discrimination, racism and assimilation in the years following World War II. Their limited options become quite evident when the Younger family of South Chicago comes into a modest inheritance – and no one can agree on how it should be spent. The play highlights so many injustices that fired up the Civil Rights Movement. It is a case study in dreams deferred.
