Claremont — The 1961 ground-breaking film A Raisin in the Sun will be shown at 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Claremont Opera House in recognition of Black History Month.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted on behalf of the Racial Healing Group of Claremont, which is organizing the event. A brief introduction concerning the film’s significance will precede the showing.

A Raisin in the Sun, starring Sidney Poitier, is the story of a African-American family from Chicago’s struggle to attain the “American Dream.” It was the first movie to present the topic from an African-American perspective.
