Reading for African American History Month

Native SonReading to celebrate African American History Month

February is African American History Month, and to celebrate I am reading Native Son by Richard Wright. I began reading Native Son in one of my undergrad classes. I unfortunately never finished reading it, so in my continued effort to read all the books on my book shelves I am picking it up again.

Native Son is about a 20-year-old African American man named Bigger Thomas from 1930s Chicago. Bigger is unhappy with his life and struggles with his day-to-day existence.
