What the community says about A Raisin in the Sun
- "This is a very powerful book by Lorraine Hansberry, who died young but did so much for the LGBT community with her works. It tells the story of many members of a family struggling with all manner of things - life, death, sexuality, etc. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great book written by a lesbian."

- "What a great story! I had to read this for a class and i hesitated because I felt like I knew the story. I felt like it was going to be an over-exaggerated play about poor black people in a poor community trying to come up, and it was that. But, somehow there was more depth to the characters and plot than I expected. By the end of the second act, I found myself all twisted up inside the characters' conflicts and personalities because they were not much different than my own personal struggles. By the end of the play, I was begging for the playwright to give me some advice on how to quench this inner conflict within myself. This was an absolute masterpiece! "
- "A Raisin in the Sun is not a cookbook! But is there a better book with food in the title? Seriously, though, I had to read this for high school and it has stuck with me. An absolute classic about race in America, it really has not lost its timeliness and insight. There's a reason it is required reading."
