    Black Boy is Richard Wright's nonfiction account of growing up black in the South during the Jim Crow-era and his experience as a young adult living in Chicago during the 1930s. Richard endures many hardships, including violence, stemming from the racism of southern whites. As a young man, Richard moves North to Chicago, though he continues to struggle with segregation and poverty as he becomes involved in Communist politics. Black Boy doubles as a remarkable record of the experiences of black people during a turbulent time in American History and a powerful personal narrative of oppression.
