14 Rue Monsieur le Prince

Richard Wright's Home
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!
