B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Richard (Nathaniel) Wright (1908-1960) American short story writer and novelist, whose best known work, NATIVE SON, appeared in 1940. The book immediately established Wright as an important author and a spokesman on conditions facing African-Americans. It gained a large multiracial readership and was a Book-of-the-Month Club selection. Wright's works drew on the poverty and segregation of his childhood in the South and early adulthood in Chicago. "And, curiously, he felt that he was something, somebody, precisely and simply because of that cold threat of death. The terror of the white world had left no doubt in him about his worth; in fact, that white world had guaranteed his worth in the most brutal and dramatic manner. Most surely he was was something, in the eyes of the white world, or it would not have threatened him as it had. That white world, then, threatened as much as it beckoned. Though he did not know it, he was fatally in love with that white world, in love in a way that could never be cured. That white world's attempt to curb him dangerously and irresponsibly claimed him for its own." (from The Long Dream Richard Wright was born on a plantation near Natchez, Mississippi. He grew up in poverty. His grandparents had been slaves and his father, who was an illiterate sharecropper and mill worker, left home when Richard was five. His mother was a schoolteacher. The family moved to Memphis, where she found employment as a cook. In 1915-16 Wright attended school for a few months, but his mother's illness forced him to leave. He attended school sporadically, living with his relatives in Arkansas and Mississippi. However, he continued to teach himself, secretly borrowing books from the whites-only library in Memphis.

Richard Wright, the grandson of slaves , was born in Natchez, Mississippi, on 4th September, 1908. His father deserted the family in 1914 and when Richard was ten years old his mother had a paralytic stroke. The family were extremely poor and after a brief formal education he was forced to seek employment in order to support his mother.
Wright worked in a series of menial jobs in Memphis. He wanted to continue his education by using the local library but Jim Crow laws prevented this. Wright solved the problem by forging notes to pretend he was collecting the books for a white man. During this period he was particularly impressed by the work of H. L. Mencken

14. Richard Wright Biography
richard Nathan wright was born September 4, 1908 in Roxie, Mississippi (not far from Nachez), the son of Nathan wright, an illiterate sharecropper, and Ella Wilson wright, a schoolteacher, and the grandson of slaves.
BIOGRAPHY back to the main Wright page references Richard Nathan Wright was born September 4, 1908 in Roxie, Mississippi (not far from Nachez), the son of Nathan Wright, an illiterate sharecropper, and Ella Wilson Wright, a schoolteacher, and the grandson of slaves. In 1911 Ella takes Wright and barely one year old brother Leon Alan to Natchez to live with her family and the father later joins them and finds work in a sawmill. In 1913, the four Wrights moved to Memphis, Tennessee. But within a year, Nathan deserts them for another woman and Ella works as a cook to support the family. In September 1915, Richard entered school at Howe Institute. However, Ella fell ill early in 1916 and Richard's father Nathan's mother came for a while to care for the family. When she left, Richard and Alan had to live for a brief time in an orphange until Ella could have them live with her parents in Jackson, Mississippi. But again, Richard, Alan, and Ella were moved, this time with Ella's sister Maggieand her husband Silas Hoskins in Elaine, Arkansas. But whites murdered Hoskins, and the family ran to West Helena, Arkansas, and then to Jackson, Mississippi. After a few months, they return to West Helena, where mother and aunt cook and clean for whites. Soon, Aunt Maggie goes north to Detroit with her new lover. Wright entered school in the fall of 1918, but was forced to leave afer a few months because his mother's poor health forces him to earn money to support the family. Unable to pay their rent, the family moved and Wright gathers excess coal next to the railroad tracks in order to heat the home. When his mother suffers a paralyzing stroke, they return with Ella's Mother to Jackson, and Aunt Maggie takes Leon Alan to Detroit with her.

16. Richard Wright Black Boy - Overview
The Communist Party had been the only one to take a deep interest in RichardWright's life and had at one time offered to teach him to write.
Richard Nathaniel Wright, the son of an illiterate sharecropper father and a school teacher mother, was born on September 4, 1908, on a Mississippi plantation some twenty miles from Natchez, in the community of Roxie. His parentage is emblematic: his father may be seen as the soil, the concrete in life; his mother as the world of ideas, the abstractions that shape our sense of reality. The trajectory of Wright's life from his birth in Mississippi to his death in Paris on November 28, l960, at 52 years of age, marks a long and unfinished quest for the liberation of the mind and the human spirit. What seems to have driven Wright's quest might be described as the multiple dimensions of hunger. During his boyhood, Wright's hunger was often physical due to his father's desertion of the family when Wright was only seven years old. In fact, the absence of food and of his father became interchangeable in the boy's mind. When, as a man of thirty-seven, Wright reflected on his black childhood and youth in the Deep South, he exposed his pain in words that are haunting: "As the days slid past the image of my father became associated with my pangs of hunger, and whenever I felt hunger I thought of him with a deep biological bitterness." The bitterness, however, is not only directed against his biological father but also against a whole society that provided grounds for hunger. The painful knowledge that in the South of the early twentieth century, the ceiling of a brilliant BLACK BOY's possibilities was indeed low, thus creating a vast need for fulfillment in Wright's young life. Wright's hunger to develop as a whole human being was social, psychological, and spiritual. This hunger to be, to know, and to understand was pervasive, formative, and motivating throughout his lifetime.

His father left home when he was five, and the boy, who grew up in poverty, was often shifted from one relative to another.

There, after working in unskilled jobs, he got an opportunity to write through the Federal Writers' Project. In 1932 he became a member of the Communist Party, and in 1937 he went to New York City, where he became Harlem editor of the Communist Daily Worker He first came to the general public's attention with a volume of novellas, Uncle Tom's Children (1938), based on the question: How may a black man live in a country that denies his humanity?

R ichard Wright was born 4 September 1908 in Roxie, Mississippi, and died 28 November 1960 in Paris, France. One could sum up his life as a series of three stages: his youth in the South, his early career in the North (both Chicago and New York), and his expatriatism in France. In 1927, after years of family movements through the American South, Wright moved from Memphis to Chicago, where he would soon go to work in the post office , an experience he used in his novel Lawd Today! . In the early thirties, he began his literary career publishing poetry and short stories in such magazines as Left Front Anvil , and New Masses . The success of Uncle Tom's Children in 1938 and Native Son in 1940 propelled Wright to international fame. In 1947, in reaction to the continued racism he encountered in America, Wright decided to move to France for an indefinite period. While in France, Wright took a growing interest in anti-colonial movements and also travelled extensively. In 1959, the year before his death, Wright made plans to move with his family to England. While his family managed to go ahead, Wright was delayed by visa problems. He died in France. A page of resources for Richard Wright. This page is in its very early stage.
