Traits from Richard Wright ( Neg. & Pos.) I have read the book Black Boy and now I need to write an essay. In the essay I need to explain negative and positive traits he has shown through out the book. Any help?

For positive traits, I would say that it is very clear that Wright is a survivor. He lived through difficult times, but made the most of them. Another important point is that language, literature and writing was so important to him and basically his salvation.
