Black Boy

Richard Wright

Richard Wright’s powerful account of his journey from innocence to experience in the Jim Crow South. It is at once an unashamed confession and a profound indictment—a poignant and disturbing record of social injustice and human suffering.


Soon after Richard Wright moved to Brooklyn in 1937, Harper & Brothers decided to publish his first short story collection—click here to listen to an audio excerpt about his life and work from the HarperCollins NYC Author Audio Tour.
