In honor of Black History Month, we’re going to read “A Raisin in the Sun.” Informed by a real Supreme Court Case that Hansberry’s family was involved with, “Raisin” made the 29-year-old writer the first black woman playwright to have a play performed on Broadway. This is the story of the Younger family and their efforts to move to a house in an all-white neighborhood, as well as son Walter’s attempts to get rich and better their lives, and daughter Beneatha’s search for direction in her life.
