One of the most important themes in "A Raisin in the Sun" is the unity of the family in overcoming racism. The plot essentially deals with the plight of one family to overcome their personal differences and strive together towards a common dream. The book is about the Youngers, a poor black family living in a bad neighborhood, who receive an insurance check for $10,000 after the death of Walter's father. Each member of the family sees the check as way to realize their dreams, but animosity in form of racism stands in their way as the major obstacle. Each character experiences prejudice and this bond forces the family to come together and fight the prejudice at hand.
