Last night a welcome breeze blew through the daily mire known as prime-time television. Were you able to view ABC's premiere movie broadcast of the famous Broadway play, A Raisin in the Sun? I'm certainly glad I did. It's been a while since I've watched such a wholesome movie that didn't carry a Hallmark label.
The movie was based on the 1959 play by Lorraine Hansberry, the first black woman to ever have a play appear on Broadway. Although the play/movie is primarily about life as an African-American residing in Chicago's Woodlawn neighborhood, the story presents a plethora of valuable messages on the sanctity of life, belief in God, and the importance of rightly managing our hearts and dreams.
