The Williamsport Black Repertory Theater will present “Raisin in the Sun,” Lorraine Hansberry’s acclaimed 1959 play about the clashing dreams within a Chicago family, at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Klump Academic Center Auditorium. Tickets for the Tony-nominated drama, part of the college’s observance of Black History Month, are available at the Bush Campus Center Information Desk – $3 for students, $5 for faculty/staff and the public. Proceeds benefit the Community Alliance for Progressive Positive Action After-School Academic Enrichment Program. The ACC Auditorium will also be the venue for “Dear White People,” a satirical portrait of race relations featuring a college student whose controversial radio show sparks a media frenzy of epic proportions. Admission is free for the R-rated movie, which will be shown at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
