The central message of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, according to Florida State University’s Margaret E. Wright-Cleveland: “White people are the problem.”
It’s just that simple.
This piece of wisdom from the ivory towers of Tallahassee comes to us in a symposium on “the great American novel.”
“Twain confronts American history head-on and tells us this: White people are the problem,” she wrote.
Wright-Cleveland is listed at the college’s director of faculty recognition.
