This collection of essays on Richard Wright’s Native Son developed from a research-oriented, upper-division University of North Texas Honors College course taught during spring 2015. The student authors have exhibited burgeoning skills as historical contextualists, mindful of the author’s times, social circumstance, personal reading, narrative point of view, and aesthetic achievement, evidenced by six of these essays having been accepted for presentation at the annual conference of the American Studies Association of Texas.
