FC: A Raisin in the Sun Project | by Isabel Bors Honors English 1 Period 2

1: Quotes that portray important points of action: | "(MAMA finally makes a good strong tear and pulls out the thin blue slice of paper and inspects it closely. The boy and his mother study it raptly over MAMA's shoulders.) MAMA: Travis! (She is counting off with doubt) Is that the right number of zeros? TRAVIS: Yes'm...ten thousand dollars. Gaalee, Grandmama, you rich." pg. 68, 69

2: Quotes that portray important points of action (continued): | "MAMA: Listen to me, now. I say I been wrong, son. That I been doing to you what the rest of the world been doing to you...I paid the man thirty-five hundred dollars down on the house. That leaves sixty-five hundred dollars. Monday morning I want you to take this money and take three thousand dollars and put it in a savings account for Beneatha's schooling. The rest you put in a checking account with your name on it. And from now on any penny that come out of it or that go into it is for you to look after. For you to decide." pg. 106, 107

3: "MAMA: Well, what do you think your grandmama gone and done with that money? TRAVIS: I don't know, Grandmama. MAMA: (Putting her finger on his nose for emphasis) She went out and she bought you a house! (The explosion comes from WALTER at the end of the revelation and he jumps up and turns away from all of them in a fury. MAMA continues, to TRAVIS) You glad about the house? It's going to be yours when you get to be a man." pg. 91

4: Quotes that portray important points of action (continued): | "BOBO: That's what I'm trying to tell you...I don’t know...I waited six hours...I called his house...and I waited...six hours...I waited in the train station six hours... (Breaking into tears) That was all the extra money I had in the world... (Looking up at Walter with the tears running down his face) Man, Willy is gone.” pg. 127, 128

5: Quotes that convey a character's dreams or struggles: | "BENEATHA: That that was what one person could do for another, fix him up - sew up the problem, make him all right again. That was the most marvelous thing in the world...I wanted to do that. I always thought it was the one concrete thing in the world that a human being could do. Fix up the sick, you know - and make them whole again. This was truly being God..." pg. 133

6: Quotes that convey a character's dreams or struggles (continued): | "WALTER: Yeah. You see, this little liquor store we got in mind cost seventy-five thousand and we figured the initial investment on the place be 'bout thirty thousand, see. That be ten thousand each. Course, there's a couple of hundred you got to pay so's you don't spend your life just waiting for them clowns to get your license approved -" pg. 33

8: "MAMA: No...something has changed. (She looks at him) You something new, boy. In my time we was worried about not being lynched and getting to the North if we could and how to stay alive and still have a pinch of dignity too...Now here come you and Beneatha – talking ‘bout things we ain’t never even thought about hardly, me and your daddy. You ain’t satisfied or proud of nothing we done. I mean that you had a home; that we kept you out of trouble till you was grown; that you don't have to ride to work on the back of nobody's streetcar – You my children – but how different we done become.” pg. 74 | Quotes that convey a character's dreams or struggles (continued):

9: "ASAGAI: (Rather quietly for him) That when it is all over - that you come home with me - BENEATHA: (Staring at him and crossing away with exasperation) Oh - Asagai - at this moment you decide to be romantic! ASAGAI: (Quickly understanding the misunderstanding) My dear, young creature of the New World - I do not mean across the city - I mean across the ocean: home - to Africa. pg. 136

10: Quotes that represent important social issues faced by the Younger family: | "WALTER: Who the hell told you you had to be a doctor? If you so crazy 'bout messing 'round with sick people - then go be a nurse like other women - or just get married and be quiet..." pg. 38

11: "MAMA: Them houses they put up for colored in them areas way out seem to cost twice as much as other houses. I did the best I could." pg. 93 | "JOHNSON: (Lifting her head and blinking with the spirit of catastrophe) You mean you ain't read 'bout them colored people that was bombed out their place out there?" pg. 100

12: Quotes that represent important social issues faced by the Younger family (continued): | "LINDNER: ...But you've got to admit that a man, right or wrong, has the right to want to have the neighborhood he lives in a certain kind of way. And at the moment the overwhelming majority of our people out there feel that people get along better, take more of a common interest in the life of the community, when they share a common background. I want you to believe me when I tell you that race prejudice simply doesn't enter into it. It is a matter of the people of Clybourne Park believing, rightly or wrongly, as I say, that for the happiness of all concerned that our Negro families are happier when they live in their own communities." pg. 117, 118
