Thinking about James Baldwin...
Hey here is something cool! It is GRITtv video discussing James Baldwin, an African-American writer, scholar, activist, playwright, poet whose work explored issues of racial and sexual identity. His work and legacy have a lot of overlaps with issues of national identity, double-consciousness, and all sorts of compelling issues that we've touched on in class discussions.
