dc.description.abstract Scenes from Richard Wright's Native Son (1940) could be read as pointed satire of the documentary aesthetic, and easily be taken as Wright's final statement on the 1930s radical documentary. Balthaser argues that 12 Million Black Voices (1941) -- Richard Wright's documentary photo-montage of the Great Migration -- is "not merely the nonfiction companion to Native Son as it was advertised, but rather the culmination of Wright's own contradictory and dialectical concerns with the politics of black representation." en
