Description

This play debuted in the spring of 1959 and has since been translated into more than 30 languages. It is the story of a poor black family teetering with becoming part of the middle class. Family struggles test the faith of all involved, and the result is less than expected and filled with heartbreak. This concise supplement to Lorraine Vivian Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun helps students understand the overall structure of the novel, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author.
