After his disastrous investment with Willy Harris, Walter acknowledges that he did not constructively use his power for the benefit of his family as a whole.

The characters and settings of the story reflect Lorraine Hansberry’s biological background. An African-American, she was born in Chicago (the background of “A Raisin in the Sun”), her family was actively involved in publicly opposing racial discrimination against African-Americans (like the Younger family does in the film), and her family had the distinction of being the first that dared to move into a house in an all-white neighborhood (similar to the Youngers who reject Mr. Lindner’s racially prejudiced overtures and move into the all-white Clybourne Park area).
