The TBE Racial Justice Action Team is hosting a presentation/discussion on housing discrimination in Dane County using the extraordinary play by Lorraine Hansberry, “A Raisin in the Sun,” as the backdrop for our discussion. The play runs from August 5 to October 7 at American Players Theater in Spring Green and also is available as a film on Netflix. Using the play for historical context, Austin Johnson, employment specialist with the Urban League of Greater Madison, will lead a discussion about the barriers to home ownership for African Americans, including discrimination, federal policies, and discriminatory lending practices.
