He defies them in Chicago, where the Communist Party asserts that he will either act as they tell him to act or be expelled. Richard negates this final choice by leaving the Party of his own accord. As we see, Richard always rejects the call to conform.

This rejection creates strife and difficulty, however — not because Richard thinks cynically about people and refuses to have anything more to do with them, but precisely because he does not take this approach.

He sees that white people want to keep him and other black men 'in their place': and their place is that of a subservient child, or even an animal-like plaything for the amusement of the whites.

He has to get out of the South, not only because his ego is in danger of going under, but, as is constantly brought home, he is in mortal danger. Lynchings are part of his reality. He wrote Native Son in eight months, and it made his reputation.

Based in part on the actual case of a young black murderer of a white woman, it was one of the first of the African American protest novels, violent and shocking in its scenes of cruelty, hunger, rape, murder, flight, and prison. Black Boy is the simple, vivid, and poignant story of Wright's early years in the South.

It appeared at the beginning of a new postwar awareness of the evils of racial prejudice and did much to call attention to the plight of the African American.
