Housed in Mississippi's first public school for African American kids is the alma mater of Richard Wright, author of Black Boy , among many other works. It offers insight and explanation into the pain and perseverance of the African American legacy in Mississippi, and into Wright's own searing race consciousness, which framed much of the literary record of the Civil Rights movement.
