The show was part of a theater series during Black Heritage Month examining the changing racial makeup of American cities across many generations. It was supported by Lafayette’s START initiative, which is funded by an $800,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The program included two opportunities to see Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun on Broadway starring Denzel Washington and Diahann Carroll.

Clybourne Park, Bruce Norris’ Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning response to Hansberry’s play, spans half a century in urban America with a focus on race, real estate, and the volatile values of each. Michael O’Neill, associate professor of English and director of theater, directed the production.
