Confronting The 'Urgent Lessons' Of James Baldwin's America
Historian Eddie S. Glaude, Jr. highlights the lessons on race in America's history through the writings of James Baldwin
Glaude needed resources "to help me deal with my own despair and disillusionment" over this country still immersed in issues from the Civil Rights era such as voting rights. So he turned to Baldwin's words for the 'urgent lessons' of the activist's life that resonate deeply in current America that continues grappling with its history of racial inequity.
