; Webinar, Teaching Richard Wright’s Black Boy; Black Boy is one of the most famous, and one of the most controversial, autobiographies by an American writer. In some ways, it has a traditional narrative trajectory: from innocence to experience, from small town to big city, from repression to autonomy. Yet in its intricate meshing of life in the barbaric Jim Crow South with the angst of growing up misunderstood and maltreated by his family and peers, Black Boy is both a testament against racism and one of the great accounts of adolescent rebellion; National Humanities Center ($35).
