I love James Baldwin

I’ve watched this many times. The full debate is on Youtube. It may be the one of the most moving things I’ve ever listened to.
I’m embarrassed by my complicity in US Citizenship that I can’t help more or do more or teach more. Once you come up against the power of one man’s words and sheer intellect and observation, you feel at once in awe and humbled. That his brain is the same species of brain as mine. How can that be? He is James Baldwin… and I am not. I love him.
