Editorial Reviews

"We have an opportunity to assess Wright's formidable and lasting contribution to American literature . . . They have returned to the 1940 second printing of Uncle Tom's Children which included one additional story, 'Bright and Morning Star,' and 'The Ethics of Jim Crow,' thus offering us all the selections Wright wished the collection to have." (Charles Johnson, Chicago Tribune)
