A Raisin in the Sun is about a black family stugglingthrough family and economic hardships.
The story ended as the head of thefamily Walter took control, became a family man, and rejected an offer from awhite businessman to stay out of a white neighborhood and to stay with allblacks. This offer disgusted the Younger family and hurt their black pride. Iwould like in my own words to continue this story as I see it fit to occur. Threechanges I would make would be is Walter is forced to take action againstsegregation, the grandmother passing away, and how the blacks finally becameaccepted and began to enjoy and be proud of where they live.As the Younger family moves themselves into a white suburbanneighborghood the whites in the community are upset that they have come to bewith them. Their direct neighbors who have a son that is Travis's age no longerlets her son play with Travis and he become hurt and confused.
Walter has toexplain that many people that are white beleive that they are better then thosewho are black. Travis who is stay in dismay and is confused waits at home whileWalter goes over to the neighbors house to talk to them about what hashappened. Walter is, in good reason, very angry and annoyed by the racistwhites. 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 willthrougth that little black spoiled brat back into your yard.
" Walter becomesenraged and hits the man directly in the face as hard as he can. This brings anupraw amongst the Youngers and the entire community. Thus bringing thewhites, even those who weren't before, totally against the Younger family.After the eventual calming down of the community and the lowering ofracial 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 ofknowing her family can get along by themselves. The Younger family is at firstvery upset and sad because of the death, but they relize that she is where shereally wants to be, with her husband. Beneatha is now unsure if she should gooff to college because of the death.
Walter has a private talk with ehr andconvinces her that it would be the best for her future, and that she would regrether decision if she didn't go.Slowly but surely the Youngers wanted to become a part of thecommunity, and were taken as some. The first people of the Younger family toassociate and try to become friends with the whites is the young Travis. AsBeneatha is off at school Travis brings home a white friend one Friday afternoonto play with him. His parents have no objection, and think that he may be themost grown up in the family, because he is willing to forgive and forget.
The restof the Younger family tries to follow in the foot steps of the little boy. Walterslowly forgives the whites who slowly change their attitudes towards them. Downthe road another black family moves in and keeps the Youngers company andgives them some one to relate with. As three or four more blacks gradually moveinto the neighborhood the community becomes more black-white oriented andthey finally get along together and are able to share their lives in equality.
This is my happy ending to the story, A RAISIN IN THE SUN. I feel thatthe whites in the community would eventually become more and more friendlywith the blacks and more comfortable with them. The hardships the Youngerfamily have been through helped very much to bring the family together and toomake their love for each other more than it was at the beginning of the book.
