Topics Investigated

Welcome to our web site!

We've been investigating the historical accuracy of Lorraine Hansberry's Raisin in the Sun and would like to share some of our findings.

Our class is a Composition II class involved in research writing. What better topic to research is there than Chicago. So we've divided up several aspects of Hansberry's play and have gone searching for materials.

We hope you'll find the information on this site to be both interesting and informative.
