Its large cast of powerfully affecting characters includes Joe Youngblood, a tragic figure of heroic physical strength; Laurie Lee, his beautiful and strong-willed wife; Richard Myles, a young high school teacher from New York; and Robby, the Youngbloods' son, who takes the large risk of becoming involved in the labor movement.

About the Author:

JOHN OLIVER KILLENS (1916-1987) was born in Macon, Georgia. He wrote four novels, including And Then We Heard the Thunder, several screenplays, a biography of Denmark Vesey, and essays collected under the title Black Man’s Burden.

Review:

Published originally on the heels of the Supreme Court's decision of 1954, Youngblood marked the beginning of a new era in African American literature, for it broke starkly with the Wright school and opened a path for those novelists, poets, and playwrights who comprised the Neo-Black Arts Movement―a movement that recognized John Oliver Killens as its spiritual father.

(Toni Cade Bambara)

[Killens] has written a novel, timeless in evocations of the rights of humankind and unparalleled in its optimism concerning the human condition. Youngblood is a tremendous achievement.

(Addison Gayle)

It has the power of the author's passion. The novel of social protest . . . justifies itself when it is as moving as Youngblood and deals with so gross an evil.

(Granville Hicks New York Times)
