Annotation Classic novel of a black family living in a small Kansas town during the 1920s, when African-Americans were relegated to second-class citizenship and terrorized by racial violence. The story centers on the young son, Newt, during the years of his adolescence as he engages in his first sexual experience, tangles with the town tough, and wrestles with his awe of death. For high school and older readers. Some strong language.
