Happy Birthday James Baldwin

Novelist, essayist, and playwright James Baldwin (pictured) stands out as one of America’s most-treasured wordsmiths, notable for his bold ruminations on race, sexuality, and other subjects considered too controversial for the time of his creative peak. As a homosexual man, some of Baldwin’s work focused on not only the complexities of the role of Blacks in America, but also that of gay men who faced atrocious criticism and prejudice during his climb in to the literary ranks.
