Who was Karl Lindner in A Raisin in the Sun?
Karl Lindner was a representative from the Clybourne Park Improvement Association, and he went to the Younger's apartment to tell them that he'll offer them more money for the house than they spent because the neighborhood doesn't like the fact that they're black, they're scared of them.

George and Asagai as well as Ruth and Walter
the family went to move to the other house even though they were not welcome and didnt have much money
Ruth Younger is the wife of Walter lee and the mother of travis.
Willy and Bobo are Walter's "business partners," and he plans on opening a liquor store with them. Walter's family sees them as "good for nothing loudmouths," and criticizes W…alter's trust in them. In the end, their mistrust is validated, when Bobo is forced to be the bearing of bad news. He reports that when Willy and Bobo were supposed to meet at the train station to work out details of opening the liquor store with the money Walter had invested (given to him by Mama for him to invest in Beneatha's school and for himself), Walter had run off with it, abandoning them and leaving them hopeless.
Her dream is to become a doctor to help her family financially. She also wants a bigger house and she wants to live a better life.

She went and bought a house in a white neighborhood for the family to live in.
Walter finds Willy Harris in the train, Walter takes out a gun and shoots to kill Willy Harris and takes the money back. Then the Younger family moves to their new house and b…urn down all the white people's houses. Legend says they still live there to this day.
Beneatha is Mama's daughter and Walter's sister. She is more educated than the rest of the family and they think that she is proud and kind of demanding. Asagai wants to marry… her and take her to Africa, where he thinks her prospects will be higher, and she wants to go to medical school and become a doctor so that she can "make people better." This dream might be halted in its tracks because of Walter's misuse of money, but that is left uncertain at the end of the book. Beneatha is trying to decide who she is and who she wants to be as she grapples with the ideas of different influences- Asagai, who wants her to put aside her "assimilationist" leanings, her family, who thinks she should settle with a rich African American man to support her family, and her own childhood dream of becoming an educated woman and a doctor.
Mrs. Johnson is a racist (towards her own people), stereotypical African America woman. She is judgemental and controlling. She is the Younger family's neighbor in their apart…ment building and is only present for one scene. In early versions of the play, she was cut out for her racism and rude language.
the sun represents a sun. But the title A Raisin in the sun is actually a poem. By Langston Hughes What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up Like a raisin in the… sun ? or fester like a sore- And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over- Like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? -Langston Hughes, "Harlem" well that's where the title comes from. need any more help just ask me.
Mr. Lindner offers the Younger family some monetary compensation so that the Youngers do not move into the new, white neighborhood.
