Conquest by Oscar Micheaux is a compelling and thought-provoking novel that delves into themes of race, identity, and power dynamics in early 20th century America. The story follows the journey of a young African American man named William, who navigates through a world filled with discrimination and prejudice.

Micheaux does a fantastic job of painting a vivid picture of the challenges faced by African Americans during this time period, while also offering a message of hope and resilience. The characters are well-developed and the plot is engaging, keeping the reader invested in William's story from beginning to end.

One of the standout aspects of Conquest is the way that Micheaux tackles complex issues such as racism and inequality with nuance and sensitivity. The novel is a powerful commentary on the social injustices of the era, and serves as a reminder of the progress that still needs to be made in our society today.

Overall, Conquest is a gripping and important novel that sheds light on an often overlooked chapter of American history. Oscar Micheaux's writing is both emotional and impactful, leaving a lasting impression on the reader. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in exploring the intersections of race, identity, and power in America.

Book Description:
"This is the true story of a negro who was discontented and the circumstances that were the outcome of that discontent." While considered a novel, this largely autobiographical story is based on the author's experience as an African-American pioneer in South Dakota.
