BBC Radio 4 „Great Lives“: James Baldwin

Logo BBC bei Wikimedia Commons„The chef and co-founder of The Riv­er Cafe, Ruth Rogers, picks the life of the writer and activist James Bald­win.
A writer, poet, play­wright and activist, Bald­win was known as a trail­blaz­ing explor­er of race, class and sex­u­al­i­ty in Amer­i­ca and the “lit­er­ary voice of the Civ­il Rights move­ment”.
Join­ing Ruth and Matthew is Pro­fes­sor Rich Blint from the Eugene Lang Col­lege of Lib­er­al Arts in New York. He is direc­tor of the college’s race and eth­nic­i­ty pro­gramme and is a con­tribut­ing edi­tor to the James Bald­win Review. Togeth­er they explore Baldwin’s writ­ing style, the tur­bu­lent times faced both polit­i­cal­ly and per­son­al­ly; and ask – were he alive today – whether he would feel the world had pro­gressed in its atti­tude to race.“
