Continuing on I Am Not Your Negro, “Notes of a Native Son” (1955), and The Fire Next Time (1963).
We (and Lawrence Ware) discuss Baldwin’s critique of the American dream, how to oppose the inhumanity of others without becoming inhuman yourself, and Baldwin’s take on religion. Plus, was the the documentary actually good as a film?
Supplement this with the Phi Fic discussion (featuring Mark!) on Baldwin’s short stories “This Morning, This Evening, So Soon” (1960) and “Sonny’s Blues” (1957).
