U.SA. / 1954
Richard Wright was born in 1908 in Natchez, Mississippi. He published many other fiction and non-fiction books besides Native Son and Black Boy. This quote comes from one of his lesser known works: Black Power. Black Power is a travelogue of his experiences during his first trip to Ghana. He traveled there to learn more about its culture and the politic landscape - as Ghana was still fighting for its independence from England. This quote is in response to Wright's witnessing of a traditional Ghanaian dance. I have no idea where you could find this book. Lol. Maybe its on some deep web online marketplace? Anyway, I love Richard Wright! He was such a fearless, revolutionary and creative human being.
