Summary
Set in 1940 Chicago, "Native Son" tells the explosive story of a young poverty-stricken black man who obtains a job as a chauffeur to a wealthy white family. However, tragedy ensues when he accidentally kills his employer's daughter. Vainly trying to cover his act, the eventual discovery of his crime unleashes a savage manhunt fueled by racial hatred and the fury of a white society
