The East Side Freedom Library will host a discussion with professional theater artists Harry Waters Jr. and Thomasina Petrus about “A Raisin in the Sun”, Lorraine Hansberry’s classic play, as well as a reading of a portion of the script. “A Raisin in the Sun” is a fiercely moving portrait of a family living and struggling in Chicago’s South Side in the 1950s. It was the first play written by an African-American woman to be performed on Broadway (debuted in 1959).
