Act II

Oh Walter, you have gotten yourself into some trouble I see. Family is the most important thing in life, how could you just throw away your Mama’s money like that? She asked one thing of you, and that was to put away money for Beneatha’s schooling, and you couldn’t do that. It’s no wonder why your family is getting sick of you.

Mama has got her hands full now with the new “Welcoming Committee”. Don’t let them white folks scare you out of your new home and new life. You are just as good as them, if not better. Neighborhoods shouldn’t be divided by color. Those white folks will realize it soon enough.

1 thought on “Act II

  1. I think this matter is a worry of the past. As Mama stated at the end of the play “Walter has finally come into his manhood”. Walter is now a man. He had been through a lot of pain experiencing these difficult times of his life and watched his dream drying like “A Raisin in the Sun”. One think you must know Kate, Walter’s dream of becoming a business man did not come true but his dream of becoming a man did. Therefore Walter will certainly know how to handle his new neighborhood and cope appropriately as he should.
