A Happy Ending for A Raisin in the Sun
A Raisin in the Sun is about a black family stuggling
through family and economic hardships. The story ended as the head of the
family Walter took control, became a family man, and rejected an offer from a
white businessman to stay out of a white neighborhood and to stay with all
blacks. This offer disgusted the Younger family and hurt their black pride. I
would like in my own words to continue this story as I see it fit to occur. Three
changes I would make would be is Walter is forced to take action against
segregation, the grandmother passing away, and how the blacks finally became
accepted and began to enjoy and be proud of where they live.
As the Younger family moves themselves into a white suburban
neighborghood the whites in the community are upset that they have come to be
with them. Their direct neighbors who have a son that is Travis’s age no longer
lets her son play with Travis and he become hurt and confused. Walter has to
explain that many people that are white beleive that they are better then those
who are black. Travis who is stay in dismay and is confused waits at home while
Walter goes over to the neighbors house to talk to them about what has
happened. Walter is, in good reason, very angry and annoyed by the racist
whites. He goes over and at first tries his best to stay calm over the situation.
The white father then says, “Listen, if I ever see your son with mine, I will
througth that little black spoiled brat back into your yard.” Walter becomes
enraged and hits the man directly in the face as hard as he can. This brings an
upraw amongst the Youngers and the entire community. Thus bringing the
whites, even those who weren’t before, totally against the Younger family.
After the eventual calming down of the community and the lowering of
racial tensions of the blacks against the whites, grandma Ruth who paid her own
$10,000 for the house they live in dies in her sleep, but in the hapiness of
knowing her family can get along by themselves.
