Raisin in the Sun - 2.0 CE


The 1959 play, "Raisin in the Sun", is the story of an African-American family's struggle to get ahead in Chicago. After the performance, there will be a conversation about the play’s relevance to today's society. Universal and distinctly African-American, "Raisin in the Sun", is about family dynamics, race, society and opportunity. It offers a rich basis for discussion. The St. Louis, MO cast is led by an Eastern High School and Albion College graduate.


Learning Objectives:

  • For participants to be able to identify and understand similarities and differences for individuals of different ethnic and/or racial backgrounds.
  • For participants to be able to identify ways that language reflects or is used to enforce racism.
