Description:
 Join film historian Doug Deuchler to view and discuss the 1961 film, "A Raisin in the Sun"(128 minutes) based on Lorraine Hansberry's award-winning play. A poor, but proud, African American family seek a better life by moving from their small apartment on Chicago's South Side into an all-white area.

This film, the first of three feature films, is part of the "Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle" series of film, panel discussions and author programs which continues through March.

"Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle" is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its "Bridging Cultures" initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
