A Raisin in the Sun tells the story of a family living and struggling in Chicago's South Side in the 1950s. A fiercely moving portrait of people whose hopes and dreams are constantly deferred, "A Raisin in the Sun" was the first play written by an African American woman to be produced on Broadway. The highly anticipated special three-hour television movie adaptation of A Raisin in the Sun is based on the play that inspired a generation.
