“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.

    I had to read it for school but I don’t regret it. It was a really good, simple read, with many ups and downs. Kept me entertained the whole way through.

    A raisin in the sun A amazing book showing the ways that colored people had to live and strive, when America still had a lot of strong racist criticisms. Great to better understand how things used to be.

    I read this in Jr high school for a project. Its been one of my favorite stories. By far, despite today’s society, produced what was the closest thing to a functional family; even in such a time period.
