James Baldwin and Me

I spent #BlackOutTuesday reading the texts of author James Baldwin from the film I am not your Negro.

I have been reflecting how my “slave rebellion” (using Baldwin’s words) will manifest. But his speech in 1974 at Berkeley — warning n***** warheads — had provided me with some direction.

I will no longer be an apologist.

Time to continue work on Black History but add history from within my own life time.
