Lorraine Hansberry, author of A Raisin in the Sun

Although we may not be able to respond to a “live” theatre production this semester, I have provided you
two options of performances that were filmed. Also, there is a documentary you may wish to write about
regarding playwright, Lorraine Hansberry, author of A Raisin in the Sun. If you select this assignment
option you will choose either:
1) Latin History for Morons (starring John Leuqizamo) – a taped live production of his Broadway
show. Netflix – Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CthHb59D4L0
2) What the Constitution Means to Me (written and starring Heidi Schreck) – Amazon Prime
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2zSRdVanDY
3) Lorraine Hansberry: Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart (a documentary) – Amazon Prime / PBS
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3Mg0KQ_oZo
Note: Do your own research to discover alternative sources to view your selection should you select this
assignment.
Understand that this assignment will take time, reflection, writing a draft, looking it over carefully and
perhaps having someone you trust look over it, and then making any adjustments necessary before turning
it in.
I am interested in what you think and why. Use logic and reasoning to support your viewpoint as
well. When making a specific point, reference a part of the play or documentary to help illustrate
your viewpoint. Feel free to contact me should you have questions.
The paper will be typed, double-spaced and be a minimum of three full pages and no longer than four
pages with one-inch margins. The student is expected to read closely “Considerations When Writing a
Response Paper” available in your textbook or this specific Assignment Option folder where you will also
find additional guideline details provided by the professor. Such guidelines can be applied if you select
the documentary as well.
