in today’s “Revolutionary Corner” …
I am not ashamed to admit that I have never watched any televised interviews James Baldwin had during his time.
As an avid fan and reader of his work, I was never really interested in seeing him on the old school TV programs. I needed my mental image of who he is/was to remain true to what I imagined. In my experience, some of my heroes lost MAJOR cool points when I finally saw them aside from their art.
But in this case, I stand corrected. As in his writing Baldwin was a MadMan.
Check out this clip of him giving ’em hell … No introduction needed.
