My exposure to Black Imagination through this class has broadened my understanding of how people express themselves and how art empowers groups. Looking particularly at “A Raisin in the Sun,” the depth of the characters, particularly Black female characters, who highlighted themes of struggles pertaining to achieving one’s dreams in a society directly trying to stop them enriched my learning most definitely. The fact that this struggle was based on the author of the play’s personal experience, coupled with my research on Harvey and Johnetta Clark for class, taught me about the truth of American history as well as the truth found in art.
