This is the first film on the life and legacy of Richard Wright who overcame a childhood of poverty and oppression to become one of America's most influential writers. The film weaves together dramatic recreations of his work and recollections of friends and scholars. It follows his journey through the Chicago Black cultural renaissance of the 1930's, the Communist Party during the Depression, the MacCarthy-era, the American expatriate community in 1950's Paris and his final years.
