Still image from Native Son

Weaves together critical analysis of "Native Son," commentary on America during 1930–1940, and some biographical data on author Richard Wright. Authors and scholars compare Wright's powerful portrait of racism in America to his personal experiences and those of African Americans during the '30s and '40s. Reenactments and photos complement this literary criticism narrated by Donald Sutherland. NOTE: Photo of lynched man.
