The Raisin in the sun discussion
Write a paragraph response to one of the following questions:
1) Watch and listen to Langston Hughes’ poem Harlem (A Dream Deferred) in the following clip, used by a Boston production to advertise their production of A Raisin in the Sun. How does the poem relate to the play?
2) Compare and Contrast these two film scenes of A Raisin in the Sun. What is the significance of Walter’s decision? Did his decision surprise you? Why or why not? What do you think of the casting and performances in these clips?
The discussion forum is a place for us to get to know each other and share our thoughts as a class. You are expected to contribute to every discussion, writing at least a paragraph. I consider a paragraph to be about five sentences in length.
