A Raisin in the Sun "Never before, the entire history of the American theater, has so much of the truth of black people's lives been seen on the stage," observed James Baldwin shortly before A Raisin in the Sun opened on Broadway in 1959.

Indeed Lorraine Hansberry's award-winning drama about the hopes and aspirations of a struggling, working-class family living on the South Side of Chicago connected profoundly with the psyche of black America--and changed American theater forever.  The play's title comes from a line in Langston Hughes's poem "Harlem," which warns that a dream deferred might "dry up/like a raisin in the sun."

"The events of every passing year add resonance to A Raisin in the Sun," said The New York Times.  "It is as if history is conspiring to make the play a classic."  This Modern Library edition presents the fully restored, uncut version of Hansberry's landmark work with an introduction by Robert Nemiroff., a raisin in the sun, a raisin in the sun movie, a raisin in the sun pdf, a raisin in the sun summary, a raisin in the sun characters, a raisin in the sun quotes, a raisin in the sun play, a raisin in the sun cast, a raisin in the sun poem, a raisin in the sun themes

    This book was required for my school's summer reading program. It was a good way for me to see how people were back then struggling just trying coming out of poverty.
