Bring your students for an in-person field trip to NJPAC to experience Lorraine Hansberry’s dramatic masterpiece. This groundbreaking play from 1959 is as relevant as ever today. It follows the Youngers, an African American family who have big hopes in their small house on the south side of Chicago. As they grapple with prejudice, history and a world that is changing around them, will their dreams be deferred? Every student should see this play at least once in their lifetime, and this is your opportunity to introduce it to your class.
