Richard Wright’s Black Boy is a powerful account of a young man's journey from innocence to experience growing up in the Jim Crow South. This semiautobiographical work is both an unashamed confession of a proud non-conformist and a profound indictment against our country’s disturbing record of social injustice and human suffering. Now, in this Philadelphia premiere by Literature to Life, a single actor makes this poignant narrative come alive on stage, playing over 15 characters from Wright’s past and illuminating connections between current times and troubled history.
