Seventh graders learned the answer to the Langston Hughes poem’s rhetorical question: “What happens to a dream deferred?” when they traveled to Arena Stage this week to see Lorraine Hansberry’s play A Raisin in the Sun performed. Seventh graders read the play earlier in the year in English class with Mr. Green and Ms. Peale. The story deals with the varied dreams of an African American family in Chicago who each seek to pursue a greater degree of freedom through home ownership, business ownership, or travel and academics. Seventh graders also had the chance to see historical fiction drama “Watch on the Rhine” at Arena Stage earlier this year, which dealt with the anti-Fascist¬†resistance during World War II.
