This is a must read book,It about poor black family, who was struggling in their life and didn't have enough to live. It mostly encourage those who doesn't have as much that even though,but you can still make life successful by working hard and don't be discourage by rich people. I love the fact that the little money they get they want to better them self by going to school.

Great little screenplay!

Hansberry's play is both enjoyable and painful. A picture of a time in our history that was shameful, and the pain of the family is shared with the reader. Once you have read the play, see the movie, too. They did a great job of it!
