black boy

"Trying to please everybody, I pleased nobody..."
                                                                    Chapter 18, Black Boy

"I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of the hunger of life that gnaws in us all, to keep alive in our hearts a sense of the inexpressibly human."
                                                           Chapter 20, Black Boy

On today, in 1945, Richard Wright's 'Black Boy' reached first place on the National Best Seller Book List.
