PBS Arts Fall Festival presents "A Raisin in the Sun Revisited" on Friday at 9 pm

Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking 1959 drama, A Raisin in the Sun, was the first Broadway play to depict the strength and humanity of an African-American family striving for a piece of the American dream by buying a house in a white working-class neighborhood in Chicago. More than 50 years later, playwright Bruce Norris created Clybourne Park, a sardonic Pulitzer Prize-of race, real estate and gentrification in America.

"A Raisin in the Sun" can be seen on Friday, October 25th at 9:00 p.m.
