"Born in rural Mississippi, the grandson of slaves, Richard Wright overcame daunting obstacles to achieve literary recognition as the creator of some of America's most powerful black literature. Wright's works changed the cultural landscape by challenging old stereotypes and myths about race. This critical volume helps students appreciate the literary significance of such groundbreaking works as Native Son and the autobiographical Black Boy. It serves students of both literature and social history as it explores the themes of racism and all types of institutionalized oppression that Wright exposed in his writing."--Jacket
The historian's narrative of Frederick Douglass : reading Douglass's autobiography as social and cultural history by Frederick Douglass( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederick Douglass was a slave, then a free man. He was an abolitionist, a writer, and an orator who became a great social reformer and statesman. Perhaps even more important, he served as a powerful counter-example to white Americans who believed black people could not be their equals. Douglass dedicated his life to the pursuit of freedom and equality for not just African Americans, but for all people, of all races, male and female. The Historian's Narrative of Frederick Douglass: Reading Douglass's Autobiography as Social and Cultural History covers the first decades of Frederick Douglass's life, from his childhood through his escape from slavery in 1838 and his early years as a fiery abolitionist speaker in the North. The book provides readers with the necessary biographical and historical context to better understand and fully appreciate the Douglass's classic memoir. Readers will learn about slavery, the abolitionist movement, efforts of resistance to slavery and escape from it, and the great importance of literacy in combating slavery. The book is written in accessible language that will engage high school and college students as well as general readers, but deals with challenging and provocative concepts
