Writing Is His WeaponUnknown - 2008
A self-taught writer, Richard Wright refused to let the obstacles of segregation, limited educational facilities and racism, discourage him from his dream of being a writer. His ability to write moving and thought provoking novels about real black life in America captivated millions of people throughout America and the world, which thrust him into celebrity status. This program covers his birth to poor sharecropper parents in the deep South in 1908, his rise to the top of the literary world at just 32 years of age and the controversy surrounding his life and career.
