A Raisin in The Sun by Lorraine Hansberry

In the US post-war drama special direction is formed with the works, in which the central place is occupied by the alienation of a man, who came into conflict with social mores, norms, and structures in which he or she passes its existence.

Lorraine Hansberry was a prominent playwright of humanistic and acute social direction.

Hansberry’s play A Raisin in the Sun written in 1959, was a bombshell and became the first play of African-American author that was staged on Broadway. In the center of the play we see Younger family that lives in the south of Chicago: mother Lina and two children. Son Walter Lee works as a driver; he has a nice wife Ruth and son Travis. Her daughter Benita is about to graduate from the university and dreams of becoming a doctor. We meet with the characters of the family shortly after the death of the father. Everybody is in anticipation of a receipt (life insurance) from the insurance company. All the family members have different plans for the future money. Walter Lee wants to invest everything in business and open a shop, Benita wants to pay for her studies, and Ruth thinks about leaving the slums and buying her own house. When a check for ten thousand dollars is received, everything depends on Lina. Only she has the right to distribute the money. This is the background of the story.

The play is about family, faith, and hope. In the center of the play is the image of the mother Lina, who is understanding, loves children and grandchildren, and knows how to forgive their mistakes. Lina learned how to live wisely and simply. She experienced a lot and nothing could break her. Therefore, she does not lose her head from the huge sum of money and does not give up when money is lost. She thinks about something else: how not to lose faith and save yourself.

The role of the mother (father) in the home, family relationships, and moral principles are the same in all families, regardless of their nationality or skin color. The play A Raisin in the Sun is included in the curriculum of the first year of American high schools. The play helps children develop a sense of tolerance and respect for other cultures and history.

The Younger family is left at the time of moving to a new home. In the area of Klayborn Park, where Lina bought a house, colored people have never lived. A person from the association tried to bribe the Younger, only not to be their neighbor, but Walter Lee refused. What to do with the daily rejection of people of another color, domestic hostility, enmity, and alienation? Let’s hope that characters will find decent neighbors and friends and will avoid many problems.
