Overview

Three extraordinary nonfiction works by Richard Wright, one of America's premier literary giants of the twentieth entry, together in one volume for the first time, with an introduction by Cornel West.

Originally published in 1954, Richard Wright′s Black Power is an impassioned chronicle of the author′s trip to Africa′s Gold Coast before it became the free nation of Ghana. It speaks eloquently of empowerment and possibility, and resonates loudly to this day.

Also included in this omnibus edition are White Man, Listen , a stirring collection of Wright's essays on race, politics, and other essential social concerns ("Deserves to be read with utmost seriousness"-New York Times), and The Color Curtain, an indispensable work urging the removal of the color barrier. It remains one of the key commentaries on the question of race in the modern era. ("Truth-telling will perhaps always be unpopular and suspect, but in The Color Curtain, as in all his later nonfiction, Wright did not hesitate to tell the truth as he saw it."-Amritjit Singh, Ohio University)
