In south side Chicago, Walter Lee, a black chauffeur, dreams of a better life, and hopes to use his father's life insurance money to open a liquor store. His mother, who rejects the liquor business, uses some of the money to secure a proper house for the family. Mr Lindner, a representative of the all-white neighbourhood, tries to buy them out. Walter sinks the rest of the money into his business scheme, only to have it stolen by one of his partners. In despair Walter contacts Lindner, and almost begs to buy them out, but with the help of his wife, Walter finally finds a way to assert his dignity. Deeply committed to the black struggle for equality and human rights, Lorraine Hansberry's brilliant career as a writer was cut short by her death when she was only 35. A Raisin in the Sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on Broadway and won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. Hansberry was the youngest and the first black writer to receive this award.

"A raisin in the sun" was seen as changing American theatre forever. Miss Hansberry forced both blacks and whites to re-examine the deferred dreams of black America. "Raisin" is about how the Younger family will spend a 10,000 dollars insurance payment it has received after its patriarch's death - and about whether the family will move into a now affordable new home in a hostile, lily-white neighbourhood. The real drama, however, is the battle for the soul and identity of Walter Lee Younger, the family's son.

"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.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The question of discrimination has been an important issue ever since. In history there have always been human beings that were considered to be inferior to others. There are many reasons that caused people to consider other people to be less valuable and consequently made them think that these people can and have to be treated in a different, mostly unfair way due to their not belonging to the dominant majority. The most prominent forms of discrimination are due to racial, sexual, and social differences. If a person does not fit into the predominating norms he or she is often regarded as being no equal member of the society to which he or she belongs. Such people often try to assimilate into the society that oppresses them and adjust to the dominant majority as much as possible. But since there has been discrimination there have always been people who would not let anybody force them to be an outcast. They do not want to deny who and what they are and they struggle to be accepted and respected like everybody else. That is why whole movements like the Civil Rights Movement or the Women's Movement evolved in the United States of America to improve the situation of discriminated people and put an end to their subordinate roles within their society. Black feminists or womanists are the ones that deal with the discrimination of black women in particular. The struggles of African American women for equality can not only be seen in everyday life but in literary texts as well. Although the term womanism was not coined until the 1980's, the "concept" of black feminism had of course appeared in many literary works before that time. An example for that is Lorraine Hansberry's award-winning play A Raisin in the Sun. The drama about an African American working class family, which come

This thesis is a culmination of the lighting design for the play A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry, produced by SIUC's Department of Theater in February 2009. This thesis chronicles the design process in all aspects from beginning to end. The document begins with a textual analysis of the script along with accompanying research. The second chapter focuses on design meetings and the process of coming to decisions that were arrived at through careful considerations of metaphoric analysis and through imagistic research using Internet search engines and volumes of different artists. Chapter three focuses on the goals and evaluations of the production. Appendices contains image research, light plot, applicable paperwork, and production photos.
