The reread of Richard Wright "Black Boy" this summer was more vivid, stimulating and powerfully intelligent. The works by Richard Wright makes one feel down to the very marrow the pain, joy and intensity of being in Mississippi during a most brutal period. A boy becoming a man to reckon with against all odds. I baptized myself in his hunger, poverty, socially impaired family . . . reliving every riveting moment of human degradation and survival "By any means necessary." A must read for anyone.
