    Book Description:
    ”Richard Wright” (1908-1960) was one of the landmark authors of twentieth-century American literature as well as one of the most formidable and eloquent black voices of his day. In nearly 900 pages the editors have collected his most essential and evocative writing: essays like“Black Power” and“Pagan Spain”; selections from his autobiography Black Boy; most of the photographs and the complete text of Wright’s folk history of the African-American experience 12 Million Black Voices; representative criticism, articles, letters, and poetry; the complete novellas“The Man Who Lived Underground” and“Big Black Good Man”; and generous excerpts from novels like Uncle Tom’s Children, Native Son, The Outsider, The Long Dream, Savage Holiday, and Lawd Today. The result is a beautifully wrought miniature panorama of the career of a writer whose immense talent was matched only by his humanity.
