A Raisin in the Sun
When it was first produced in 1959, A Raisin in the Sun was awarded the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for that season and hailed as a watershed in American drama. A pioneering work by an African-American playwright, the play was a radically new representation of black life. A play that changed American theater forever.--The New York Times.

My teacher chose this book for our 11th grade class and it is AMAIZING!! It is so Fun to read and understanding the characters are really easy!! I have learned so much about what African Americans went through during that time and it brought me to appreciate what i have and not care about what i don't have!! It is so fun to watch my classmates react to the scenes and the different characters and it is so fun to watch my classmates get into character when reading this play!! I can surely say not only did i like and understand this novel but so have my fellow classmates!!!! :)
