A Reader's Guide to Richard Wright's "Black Boy"

Credited with developing the protest novel, Richard Wright became the first best-selling African-American writer of the twentieth century. Regarded by many as a masterpiece, his book Black Boy took the literary tradition of the narrative to new heights by providing a first-hand account of living in the South as an African American male during the Jim Crow era.

A Reader's Guide to Richard Wright's Black Boy by Maurene J. Hinds explores Richard Wright's novel in a great way that many readers can rely on.
