A Raisin in the Sun

When does Act II begin? What is Beneatha doing as the first scene opens? What is she wearing?

I just wonder when does this all begin and what is happening.

Act II, Scene I, opens with Ruth ironing and Beneatha getting ready for a date that night. She has on the Nigerian dress that Asagai gave her earlier. Beneatha dances to Nigerian music as she shows off her African garb, and sings in a Nigerian dialect.
