A Raisin in the Sun

Directed by
Kevin Sockwell

Set in Chicago's South Side in the 1950s, this racially relevant classic depicts the dreams and ambitions of the Younger family as they await and then receive a life-altering insurance check. Faced with daily tensions, prejudice and a harsh reality, the family struggles to maintain dignity amidst the chaos.
