Richard Wright, Native Son

This morning, NPR featured a story on Richard Wright and his impact on Black readers of his time.  They featured an interview with his daughter discussing her introduction to her father’s work.  Their website has the piece as well as a segment of the documentary Black Boy and and excerpt from the forthcoming novel by Wright, A Father’s Law, published in the centennial year of Wright’s birth.

Tomorrow, Walter Dean Myers will discuss how he was influenced by Wright.
