In voices that are hip and raunchy, bemused and sardonic, award-winning writer Reginald McKnight conjures a chorus of narratives that reveal the African-American middle class to be a crucible of human experience.

McKnight has had two extended stays in Africa, teaching English in Dakar, Senegal, from 1981 to 1982, and another in 1985 as part of a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship . The Kind of Light that Shines on Texas. ISBN 978-0-316-56056-6.

In settings ranging from a mythic past, with a detour through hell to a totalitarian and divided US of the future, McKnight's characters, consistently sensitive and serious, try to survive in a world where both men and women must be approached with wariness, racism is endemic, and love is at best equivocal.

His first novel, I Get on the Bus, was published in 1990, soon to be followed by a second short-story collection titled The Kind of Light That Shines on Texas. In 2000 he accepted a position at the University of Michigan, and in 2002 he was appointed the first Hamilton Holmes Professor at the University of Georgia

McKnight, 2006, pg. Here is where he learns that the all are the same but it’s due to the light that they appear to be different. I believe that the conflict is not resolved but Clint learn a valuable lesson about who he really is and Clint gets involved in a fight with his bully Oakley which is the persons vs. person conflict, it all started because the gym teacher was the instigator for the conflict to happened, he was the one who put the black kid against the. white kid, he knew what was going on, and its because of this that the conflict starts.

By: Reginald McKnight. I never liked Marvin Pruitt. said, look like they do only because of the light or ray that shines on them. The color of the thing isn’t what you see, but the light that’s reflected off it. Never liked him, never knew him, even though there were only three of us in the class. Then she shut out the lights.

In voices that are hip and raunchy, bemused and sardonic, award-winning writer Reginald McKnight conjures a chorus of narratives that reveal the African-American middle class to be a crucible of human experience.

If light could shine on them it would only leave their similarities. 3. Identify another text that could be connected to McKnight’s story and explain the connection. McNight’s story has a lot of similarities to Phillis Wheatley’s On the Death of the Rev. Mr. George Whitefield. Both are texts which ask what the difference between black and white is. McNight and Wheatley have the rhetorical purpose of stressing the insignificance in the color of people’s skin

Stories of the African-American middle class range in form from a satiric folktale to a speculative glimpse at the future and feature authentic voices using humor to blanket the tragedies of the commonplace.

Difficult to review. Some of the stories are good; some are bad.
