History plays a large role in this novel, so projects that require students to research some of the locations or events in Black Boy can be very useful in conveying the period and setting more clearly.
Another good approach to Black Boy is to focus on the writing and language, and to discuss the power of language to change the world. How does Wright influence us as readers, and why did this book have such a huge impact on its audience? What makes it a lasting classic even today?
Discuss the question of love, and its lack, in Black Boy.
