In honor of Black History Month, I wanted to highlight two Black American creators of classical works. First is James Baldwin and his work, The Fire Next Time.

Here are the links relating to the episode:

Here is the link to the video of the debate between James Baldwin and William F. Buckley.

Here is a link to a shorter video that breaks down the above video.

Here’s the online exhibit of Chez Baldwin, his home in France, thanks to The National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Here’s the link to the Paris Review interview with Baldwin.  There are some great quotes in here besides the one I pulled to read.

This is an article that I think should be required reading for this episode. It’s lengthy, but every word has weight.  These are smart people talking about a higfhly intelligent man.

This is an article from The New Yorker about Baldwin and the author relating to the man and his life experiences.  Great read.

Now this one will be fun if you’ve got time and are willing to go down a James Baldwin rabbit hole.  It’s a PBS link, but it has within itself MANY MORE LINKS, so have fun!
