ADVANTAGES

Hansberry worked several jobs until 1956 when she began writing full time. She finished A Raisin in the Sun in 1957, taking its title from the lines of a Langston Hughes poem: “What happens to a dream deferred?/Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?” The play portrays the realistic struggles of a working-class African American family wanting to improve their lives.
