Personal Fact of Richard Wright

A disturbed childhood, scarred with bitter experiences of racial discrimination, left a permanent mark on young Richard Wright, who later went on to become an internationally recognised writer. His writings laid an enormous impact on the social and intellectual history of the United States of America, in the second half of the 20th century. Sometimes regarded as a controversial writer, Richard’s writings were centred on racial themes and the suffering of the African-American people.

In an era, where racism was one of the most distressing issues in the American society, his writings invoked a sense of togetherness among the African-American community and inspired many people to raise their voices and live with dignity. His best known works include Native Son, Black Boy, Uncle Tom’s Children, The God that Failed and The Outsider.

He also wrote many short stories, essays and other non-fictional books and the themes of all these works, were yet again racial discrimination and challenges faced by the average African-American. He has influenced many young writers and many of his works are part of the academic syllabuses across schools, colleges and universities in many parts of the world.
