A Raisin in the Sun
A Raisin in the Sun | Lorraine Hansberry
48 posts | 142 read | 31 to read
When it was first produced in 1959, A Raisin in the Sun was awarded the New York Drama Critics Circle Award and hailed as a watershed in American drama. Not only was it a pioneering work by an African-American playwright - Lorraine Hansberry's play was also a radically new representation of black life, one that was resolutely authentic, fiercely unsentimental, and unflinching in its vision of what happens to people whose dreams are constantly deferred. In her portrait of an embattled Chicago family, Hansberry anticipated issues that range from generational clashes to the civil rights and women's movements. She also posed the essential questions - about identity, justice and moral responsibility - at the heart of these great struggles. The result is a work that captivated audiences from every walk of life and has become a classic of American letters.

A powerful play about an African American family living together in a small apartment in Chicago. It‘s about family dynamics and how each generation has different ideas about how to achieve their dreams and be more successful than their ancestors. It‘s also about the racism and poverty that creates obstacles and oppression for reaching those dreams. #readingwomenchallenge #femaleplaywright

BeaG This is one of my favorites. I love the play and the movie too. 4w

A short but compelling & poignant story, one which is sadly still quite relevant in this country & our current reality (political & otherwise). I came to care about this family right away & felt so angered by the racism they confronted even tho it was hardly unexpected. Heart wrenching to watch them struggle to just live & find a little joy in a world that seeks to forever deny it to them. Would‘ve liked it to be longer, but still loved. 4/5 ⭐️

I‘m always at a loss of words whenever I reread anything because I try to answer the age-old question of, “Did I forget or did I not understand?” This play is remarkable. I forgot so much of the dialogue that I was astounded at the end. Highly encourage anyone of any age to read this and then read it again.

Read for JHU project. A stirring look at the aspirations and struggles of an African-American family in Chicago. I actually see some echoes of this play in Danai Gurira's play Familiar (which I highly recommend to anyone who gets the chance to see it!)

I saw a few posts this month about this play which reminded me I had it on my shelves. It was truly excellent, and I‘d like to see a live performance.

My daughter has yet another snow day today (actually for ice). We‘ve had 4 now, which is very unusual for us (at least in recent years). I swear these kids are going to go into “summer slide” in March!

I saw some other littens reading this for #readingwomenchallenge2019 and #readblackwomen and I was inspired to pick this up as it has been on my radar a while. I don‘t normally read plays but I really enjoyed this.
The dialogue is wonderful and the different types of strong women portrayed and the emotions bubbling underneath was done so well. I also haven‘t done a #booksandvinyl for ages cont in comments

Weaponxgirl Nina Simone wrote young gifted and black about the author and I don‘t have that particular Nina song on vinyl but I have arethas version so you are getting two albums for the price of one and really that‘s not a bad thing at all. 10mo

I am not a huge fan of reading plays (but I love to watch them), so I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

Set sometime between WWII and 1958 in Southside Chicago, it‘s a glimpse into the lives, hopes and dreams of a working class family, and it‘s a beautiful read. I would love to see a production!

It's a book I'm glad I read, but the story by itself didn't really talk to me. The character of Walter really angered me: screwing up your own life is one thing, but jeopardizing selfishly the future of another person is unforgivable for me. I would recommend the pictured edition of the play because of the related readings added at the end, which give different perspectives and enrich the play.

Last night, I had a dream that I wanted to find out how you can tell if a raisin is bad. So, I did a Google search. I typed, “How do you know if a raisin” & it autofilled “is pregnant?” I laughed so hard I cried.

monalyisha This morning, I know that I‘d just look at the package for an expiration date. But I needed to share what my subconscious is up to. 😆 10mo

This play, written in 1959, could have been set in 2019. Which is a sad commentary on the lack of progress we made in this country.
This was one of my grandmother's favorite films. As an adult, I can really appreciate the Younger family and their struggle to provide a better a life. But what really struck me, was the sterotypes of educated black people, within the black community. It is something I have experienced first hand.

“You can teach anything about life with A Raisin in the Sun.” - LW (my mentor teacher). When I was student teaching, my mentor teacher said this to me. And now, as I work with a particularly difficult group of sophomores, I‘d have to agree. They‘re really loving it and are getting into discussions about the major themes which has been truly amazing to watch. #teachersoflitsy

Day 19 - Stage: Lorraine Hansberry died young. Age 34. In the year 1959, at age 29, she became the ‘youngest American, the fifth woman, and the first black playwright to win the Best Play of the Year Award of the New York Drama Critics.‘ That was for this play, A Raisin in the Sun. It is a brilliant depiction of the fallout when common dreams and aspirations are repeatedly deferred, deflated and held beyond reach. Recommended! #ReadingResolutions

Dragon Love the movie with Sidney Poitier 2y
Nute @dragon The movie was as brilliant as the book. It was well acted. I haven‘t seen it in years, but I can hear Sydney Poitier‘s voice in my head right now...the level of frustration as he tried to explain his feelings to his mother and his sister. 2y
Dragon Last time I watched it was on Turner Classics a few years back. I watched the remake but didn‘t like it as much. 2y
JazzFeathers I never read the book, but l've seen the film with Sidney Poitier a few times. Soooo good!!! 2y

I loved A Raisin in the Sun. I was a little worried since it is a play. I haven't read many plays but I think my over active imagination paid off here. I could envision it all easily. This particular quote really just slaps you in the face. I had to stop for a minute and absorb the horrible truth of it.

Child, when do you think is the time to love somebody the most? When they done good and made things easy for everybody? Well then, you ain't through learning-because that ain't the time at all...when you starts measuring somebody, measure him right, child, measure him right. Make sure you done taken into account what hills and valleys he come through before he got to wherever he is.

Oh January you were such a tumultuous month. I've never gnashed my teeth together in frustration as much as I have this month. Every time I turn my phone on to read the news or social media there's something else to get angry about.

But there will always be books. And in books I get lost, I laugh, I cry, and I learn. And I will never tire of that.

We're starting A Raisin in the Sun aloud today. This play continues to be relevant: Hansberry gives the audience lots to consider regarding the many facets of systemic oppression. Already they're having really intense conversations about the intersections of gender, race, poverty, & opportunity.

JackieSmith @APLitlife What class novels/plays do you read with your students? 3y
APLitlife I try to pair with their World History class. I start with How to Read Literature like a Professor, then go into Gilgamesh and Antigone, and end first semester with Snow Flower and the Secret Fan to take them through ancient China. Next semester we start with Julius Caesar and then into Frankenstein and Lord of the Flies. My regulars are doing Maus instead of LOTF. How about you? 3y
JackieSmith @APLitlife That's an awesome progression! I'm impressed you tackle Gilgamesh w sophs. We do some chapters from How to Read Lit throughout the year (we read the geography chapter before Lord of the Flies). Sem 1: House on Mango St, Mockingbird, Lord of Flies, Raisin. Sem 2: Fahrenheit, Metamorphosis, Persepolis, The Spirit Catches You & You Fall Down, All Quiet, Night. I'd like to add Antigone or Medea, but when? 3y
APLitlife Love that lineup! How do you cover so many and writing? It takes me 6 weeks to cover literary analysis and research reports! Not to mention close reading and SAT practice! 3y
JackieSmith @APLitlife Students do most reading & discussion prep outside of class. They learn a simple close reading protocol that we use with progressively denser texts. Lots of work/practice in Writer's Notebooks. Research project is shared with Latin teacher. My students are willing to work really hard! I don't do SAT prep as that's offered as an elective. 3y

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up

Or fester like a sore -

Or crust and sugar over -

Maybe it just sags
Like a heavy load

Or does it explode?
