Richard Wright is an influential writer who changed the face of American literature to give a voice to the voiceless.
When asked, in 1945, why he wrote Black Boy, a harrowing account of his Southern childhood, Wright replied that he wanted to "give [his] tongue to the voiceless Negro boys." Fifty years later, Richard Wright's passion for words is depicted in the first full-length documentary on the influential writer who changed the face of American literature.
