A Raisin in the Sun

Event, Film Screening


Raisin in the sun

This lauded drama follows the Youngers, an African-American family living together in an apartment in Chicago. Following the death of their patriarch, they try to determine what to do with the substantial insurance payment they’ll soon receive. Opinions on what to do with the money vary. Walter Lee (Sidney Poitier) wants to make a business investment, while his mother, Lena (Claudia McNeil), is intent on buying a house for them all to live in— two differing views of the American Dream.


This spring, the Adelphi University Department of History will host a series of film screenings exploring the history of immigration, migration and race.  At the conclusion of each screening, a member of the Adelphi faculty will lead a discussion about the film with the audience.  All screenings will take place in the Concert Hall and are free and open to the public.
