A Black Boy (P.S.) by Richard Wright is a book that I couldn’t put down until I finished reading it. The most amazing part for me was how Richard had developed wisdom, discretion and self esteem despite of his very tough childhood.
Richard rose above his circumstances and made himself better off. That’s inspiring. This book gave me a new insight into the issues of the slavery and communism in the United States. Anyone who is interested in African American history must read this book.
