Richard Wright, Black Boy: Film Screening & Discussion

The first documentary film on the life, work and legacy of Richard Wright. Born outside Natchez, Mississippi in 1908, Wright overcame a childhood of poverty and oppression to become one of America's most influential writers. His first major works, Native Son and Black Boy, were runaway best sellers which are still mainstays of high school and college literature and composition classes.

Discussant: Dr. David A. Gilliam, Department of Modern Languages
