Join us as we celebrate Richard Wright, one of America’s (and Mississippi’s) greatest writers! Wright challenged our thinking with his books, Native Son and Black Boy. In honor of the 80th anniversary of the publication of Native Son, The MAX is screening HBO’s 2019 film adaptation. The first 70 guests will receive free bookmarks and an anniversary edition of Black Boy. Copies of Native Son can be purchased in The MAX Store. Free and open to the public. TV-MA.
