In 1947, after receiving acclaim in America, Richard Wright, author of "Black Boy" and "Native Son," resettled in Paris France. He lived here until his death in 1960.
While on a trip to Paris in 2012, I set out to find the great American writer's home. After an hour or so of searching, almost ready to give up, we found the building. A plaque marks the location.
The trek was inspired by Nelson George's defunct "Soul Cities" program. Thanks, Nelson!
