Natchez TrailsThe Richard Wright historic marker recognizes the city's most famous 20th-century writer. Born in 1908 on a cotton plantation near Natchez, Wright spent his early childhood in town in the home of his grandparents at 20 East Woodlawn Avenue (pictured above). In 1940, Wright's novel Native Son was published and became the first book by an African American selected by the Book of the Month Club.
