As an example, it is possible to perceive the low rate ofhomeownership within African American families, and with that, the author Lorraine Hansberry created the “A Raisin in the Sun” play to bring light to this specific issue and many others. The writer shows the audience the struggles and dynamics of an African American household by introducing the Younger family. It is formed by the matriarch Lena, the patriarch Big Walter, their son Walter Lee, their daughter Beneatha, their daughter-in-law Ruth, and their grandson Travis and each one portrays their own sort of difficulty. Particularly, Walter Lee is a condemnable character at first; however, if the readers deeply explore him, we can see that his behavior is justifiable. It is evident that his character should be empathized because the conflicts surrounding Walter Lee are the result of a racist social structure.
