About the Author

Richard Wright won international renown for his powerful and visceral depiction of the black experience. He stands today alongside such African-American luminaries as Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, and Toni Morrison, and two of his novels, Native Son and Black Boy, are required reading in high schools and colleges across the nation. He died in 1960.

Reviews

"Short text and picture folk history of the Black American, in which the author of Native Son writes a burning commentary on three centuries of slavery, persecution, and want . . . Edwin Rosskam, the photographic editor, reinforces the text with superb photographs."
--The New Yorker

"A more eloquent statement of it's kind could hardly have been devised . . . flawless prose that takes on at times of the quality of a folk song." --The New York Times Book Review

"Among all the works of Richard Wright, 12 Million Black Voices stands out as a work of poetry, of passion, of lyricism, and of love" --David Bradley
