ABC Tried to Bury This James Baldwin Interview. Four Decades Later, It's Blisteringly Relevant.


Buried by ABC at the time, the segment has resurfaced over four decades later, revealing a unique glimpse into Baldwin’s private life—as well as his resounding criticism about white fragility, as blisteringly relevant today as it was in 1979. Conducted by the late Sylvia Chase, the interview took place at 137 West 71st Street—the Manhattan apartment building Baldwin bought for himself and his family in 1965.

Surprised this was posted. Boxden isn't too fond of gay people, even if they were civil rights activists.

It's crazy how at that time he was able to go to Paris, live relatively freely, and parse out how folks reacted to him because of who he was vs his skin color

By comparison, Paris today is New York in the 1960s-70s

Ok. But what does this do. None of the prominent black folks will @ ABC for fear of losing its luxury lifestyle and in crowd perks, so it falls on deaf ears like most black history callin out racist propaganda. This does absolutely nothing. Good post though.

People gone slap but it's true. Seen these dudes type, they would k*ll & disown their own sons, if they grew up liking the same s*x. But none the less, great video. Nice find, OP.
