A raisin in the sun* analysis: research

 

*A Raisin in the Sun*:

Write a 900- to 1500-word (3-5 pages) that answers:

-Lorraine Hansberry is often viewed as a visionary because of her ability to predict many of the relevant issues to the African-American community today. Identify some of these issues and explain how they are the same or different from how Hansberry portrayed them. 

Include within your analysis at least three citations from two acceptable scholarly secondary sources, correctly cited using MLA style, as well as evidence from the play itself, the primary source. Include a Works Cited page at the end.  Also remember you should include direct quotations and evidence from the text (the play) itself.

Note that you need an argument that supports your claim or thesis. Starting with an assertive, solidly-written claim or thesis is crucial.

 Source Requirement:

Integrate at least three pertinent quotes (or summarize or paraphrase information) from at least two academic-level outside sources  (preferably peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles, although academic websites, major magazines or newspapers, and most government websites are usually acceptable) into your analysis. “Quick find” source material (such as you’d find by Googling) is not acceptable for this. You may find sources on Google Scholar. You must locate sources in an academic library database to meet research requirements; additional quality sources are allowed.
