Mama Ruth and Beneatha in A Raisin in Sun



Question;- How are Mama, Ruth and Beneatha portrayed in the play [WAEC May June 2017]


Answer;- In 1957, Lorraine Hansberry crafted a drama that will forever remind generations of African-Americans of their ancestral hunger for higher social status in the midst of poverty; the drama being A Raisin in the Sun.

The drama saw the poor Younger family witnessed competing dreams from every member of the family in anticipation for the $10,000 insurance check.

In examining Mama, Ruth and Beneatha, despite their contrasting traits and characters, the one biding similarity is that they were all dreamers.
