ABC Tried to Bury This James Baldwin Interview. Four Decades Later, It's Blisteringly Relevant.

22 Jun 2021

Conducted by the late Sylvia Chase, the interview took place at 137 West 71st Street—the Manhattan apartment building Baldwin bought for himself and his family in 1965.

The great James Baldwin, who unlike the Negro Homosexual’s Today, NEVER put his Sexual orientation before his RACE!
