'Raisin in the Sun' is a play written by Lorraine Hansberry and explores the world of a black family living in a small house, amid financial troubles and individual dreams that need to be fulfilled. It narrates the story of the Younger family, comprising Mama, Walter Lee, Ruth, Beneatha-the main characters in the play…
Mama is scheduled to get the pension amount, and every member of the family has their own dreams, of what to make of it.

Beneatha is inclined towards Joseph Asagai, her African friend and rejects the proposal of George Murchison. Walter loses $6,500 that he gave his friend to start the liquor shop business.
