mkcapen1 | Student

In the play "A Raisin in the Son" Assagi has brought Beneatha some clothing from Nigeria.  There are some colorful robes in a package.  She is thrilled and he offers to teach her how to wear them correctly.

A few days later she is wearing her outfit when Walter walks in.  He has been drinking.  He jokes at first that he is a warrior.  He starts rambling on about his ancestors and making statements about the African life.  He seems to find humor in the outfit and the idea of the African culture.
