Richard Wright

a.k.a. Richard Nathaniel Wright

Author Code: ARNW

Born: Sep. 4, 1908 - Rucker's Plantation, Nr. Natchez, Mississippi, USA

Died: Nov. 28, 1960 - Paris, France

Wright's education was sporadic and often interrupted by the need to earn money for the family. He moved to Chicago when he was 19 and began working as a postal clerk, but he was fired in 1931. In 1933, he joined the John Reed Clud, a predominantly communist organisation, and Wright joined the party in late 1933. Because of the party's failure in dealing with issues regarding blacks, Wright eventually broke with the party. In 1938, he published Uncle Tom's Children, which was well-received and led to his appointment to the editorial board of New Masses magazine. He relocated to Harlem in New York. In 1944, he published an article in The Atlantic Monthly, I Tried to Be a Communist, which marked his final connection to the Communist Party. Following the war, Wright and his family moved to France. He became a French citizen in 1947 and continued for some years to be a popular author in France. Nevertheless, his income from the US sales of his works dwindled and his popularity suffered during the communist witch-hunts of Senator McCarthy in the early 1950s. He died suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack, although many have speculated that his death was suspicious. Wright has been a major influence on black American literature. His many works include Native Son (1940), Black Boy (1945), The Outsider (1953), Savage Holiday (1954), Black Power (1954), White Man, Listen (1957), The Long Dream (1958) and the posthumously published Eight Men (1961), Lawd Today (1963), Right of Passage (1994), and A Father's Law (2008).
