This book should become a MUST READ for all college curriculums. It's premise is ageless. It encompasses the entire experience of being black in the South as well as Jim Crow Laws and being white in the South. Richard Wright tells his story in a personal way while giving historical information about a time that our country should not be proud of, but must not be forgotten lest it be repeated. Whites should come away with more sensitivity to the struggles of todays blacks. (Using Mr. Wrights terminology for ethnicity.)
