Richard Wright is often discouraged and hindered by women whose lives touch him in his journey toward self-discovery in Black Boy. These women, including his mother, his Granny, his Aunt Addie, Mrs. Moss, her daughter Bess, and Wright’s neighbors, can be strong, nurturing, defensive, and good-hearted, although many are indifferent to his dreams, and some are even heartless. But on the other hand, women, even more than men, confirm the complying, traditional values of family, tribe, and religion, and accept limitations imposed by society, even when those limitations are hostile to their self-interest and discovery. This article argues that Richard Wright is notably impressed by the adventures of female caharacters in Black Boy and their touching stories and these women characters make significant contribution to his selfdiscovery.
