A Raisin in the Sun follows a poor black family that receives $10,000 from a life insurance policy after the father’s death. Instead of providing salvation, the money causes intense disagreements over what should be done with it. Heart-wrenching at times and humorous at others, A Raisin in the Sun explores the urban African-American experience.
