Great Works: A Raisin in the Sun
"A Raisin in the Sun" is a phrase from a Langston Hughes poem titled "Harlem, or A Dream Deferred." Lorraine Hansberry borrowed the phrase as the title for her own classic play. In the play and later movie "A Raisin in the Sun," we engage with a plurality of dreams, an abundance of personal and collective visions. Kristin Matthews helps us engage with this American classic.—Original airdate: 9/1/2008
