Greater Boston Video: A Raisin in the Sun

March 20, 2013

Lorraine Hansbury’s 1959 play – A Raisin in the Sun – went directly to the heart of race relations in this country.  It depicted the hate that rains down on an African American family when their dream home takes them to a white neighborhood. It’s a theme reconsidered over 50 years later in the recent Tony Award winning play Clybourne Park. Coincidentally, both shows are on Boston stages right now.  Jared Bowen has this look.
