SummaryAdd a Summary
This is the autobiography of Richard Wright who grew up in rural Mississippi during the 1920s. He was black, smart, poor, and hard working. I couldn't believe all the jobs he had. Parts were hard to read as discipline back then would be abuse today. Growing up, he thought going North would be the Promised Land but was disappointed when he moved to Chicago and things weren't much different than in the south.
