LINKS BY AUTHOR
Sermons and Blues (1959)
In this review of Langston Hughes's "Selected Poems," Baldwin laments
that Hughes has never lived up to his potential. "He is not the first
American Negro to find the war between his social and artistic
responsibilities all but irreconcilable," says Baldwin.
The American Dream and the American Negro (March 7, 1965)
Baldwin says that the traditional history and self-image of America are
based on a system of reality that excludes the humanity of black people
and that coming to terms with many of the issues raised by the civil
rights movement will require a more honest assessment of America's past
Negroes Are Anti-Semitic Because They're Anti-White (April 9, 1967)
"In the American context, the most ironical thing about Negro
anti-Semitism is that the Negro is really condemning the Jew for having
become an American white man--for having become, in effect, a
How One Black Man Came To Be an American: A Review of 'Roots' (September 26, 1976)
Baldwin considers African-American history in light of Alex Haley's book
"Roots," the bicentennial, and a presidential election year in which
the black vote was considered pivotal.
Last of the Great Masters (October 16, 1977)
In this review Stanley Dance's "The World of Earl Hines," Baldwin says
that the generosity of pianist Earl Hines and other jazz greats helped
redeem the suffering that informed much of the music.
An Open Letter to Mr. Carter (January 23, 1977)
Baldwin says that the injustices in two federal court cases against the
so-called Wilmington 10 and Charlotte 3 recall tactics used against
integration advocates in the early years of the civil rights movement.
If Black English Isn't a Language, Then Tell Me, What Is? (July 29, 1979)
Baldwin says that black people cannot stop speaking a distinctively
black English without suppressing the historical experiences in America
that formed that language.
Letter From a Region of My Mind (November 17, 1962)
