Right from the start, Bigger Thomas had been headed for
jail. It could have been for assault or petty larceny; by
chance, it was for murder and rape. Native Son
tells the story of this young black man caught in a
downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a
brief moment of panic. Set in Chicago in the 1930s,
Wright's powerful novel is an unsparing reflection on the
poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people
in inner cities across the country and of what it means to
be black in America.
