Performed by Tarantino Smith

Adapted and Directed by Wynn Handman


Based on Richard Wright’s searing autobiography, Black Boy dramatizes Wright’s journey from childhood innocence to adulthood in the Jim Crow South. Audiences are taken on a compelling journey focusing on Richard’s hunger for knowledge and his fight to claim his basic human rights. Though written in 1943, Black Boy’s themes of racism, injustice, and communities paralyzed by fear and misunderstanding still resonate deeply in today’s world.
