Apologies… I have been swamped and/or out of the school the last couple of days and gotten behind on these posts.
Warning: This book is not for the faint of heart. Violence. Grit. Sex. Murder. Rape. Racial brutality. It’s 1930’s Chicago and a young black man kills a young white woman. Wright addresses what it means to be black and poor in America. This book stands the test of time, unfortunately.
