This book is a study of the life, literary career, and social milieu of Richard Wright from his birth in 1908 through the publication of Native Son in 1940, with a glance in the final chapter at his withdrawal from the Communist movement and the beginning of his expatriation. The effort throughout has been to reconcile the varying claims of literary and social criticism, to examine Wright's early poetry and fiction both as works of the aesthetic and moral imagination and as events in the history of American racial protest. - Preface

"Roots": Medium and Message by Keneth Kinnamon( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A national telephone survey indicated that audiences rated the television production of "Roots" positively in terms of the following: realistic portrayal of the people and the times; relevance for contemporary race relations; perceived emotional effect; and increased understanding of the psychology of black people. However, a comparison of the television production with the book, "Roots," reveals that commercial television was more concerned with appealing to a mass audience than with reflecting the authentic quality of the original text. The television version obscured the author's black point of view and altered the basic message of the book in that it magnified the importance of the whites in the plot (Captain Davies was not a compassionate man in the novel) and drastically reduced the amount of time devoted to the main character's life in Africa and the ethnic background that was integral to the theme of the story.
