Description

Richard Wright grew up in the woods of Mississippi, with poverty, hunger, fear, and hatred. He lied, stole, and raged at those around him; at six he was a "drunkard," hanging about taverns. Surly, brutal, cold, suspicious, and self-pitying, he was surrounded on one side by whites who were either indifferent to him, pitying, or cruel, and on the other by blacks who resented anyone trying to rise above the common lot.

Black Boy is 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.

But it now

It's great for all ages and is a story, not really a biography. 9.5/10

An unforgettable book

I read this book for the first time, about 6 years ago in my Honors English class. This book touches you very deep that you will never forget the storyline.

It's okay. A good read; not great, but okay.
