Per piece

Product details

Black Boy is a memoir by American author Richard Wright, detailing his upbringing. Wright describes his youth in the South: Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee, and his eventual move to Chicago, where he establishes his writing career and becomes involved with the Communist Party. It is at once an unashamed confession and a profound indictment--a poignant and disturbing record of social injustice and human suffering. From 1975 to 1978, Black Boy was banned in schools throughout the United States for “obscenity” and “instigating hatred between the races.” \n \nAuthor Info : Richard Wright worked with the US Communist Party and as deputy editor of the Daily Worker. He wrote innumerable poems, short stories, articles in New Masses and International Literature. His novel Native Son sold 215000 copies. \n \n
