    A Raisin in the Sun

    This landmark drama was one of the first on Broadway to examine African-American life on the cusp of the civil rights era and the first play written by a black woman to be produced on Broadway. Set on Chicago's South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family. The tensions and prejudice they face mixed with the sacrifice, trust and love among the family and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration. The New York Times hailed it as "the play that changed American theatre forever."
