baldwin speaks in the uk

In this three-part lecture series, James Baldwin adds to the rhetoric on racism in The US and The Caribbean.

If you can’t wade all the way through, at least see Dick Gregory‘s contribution at the end of Part 3. He answers: Is there a place for white liberals in black power, and damn near eclipses Baldwin at his own gig. And did I mention Gregory is as fine as they come, and funny too? Nothing as good as eye candy and humour when you’re delivering stone-cold truth.

The gist:

Our ticket to the new world was a Bill of Sale.

Price paid.

Black is not a colour, it’s an attitude.
White is not a colour, it’s an attitude.
