MLK Jr. Day – An Interview with James Baldwin

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I’m posting a three-part interview series with author, intellectual and Civil Rights leader, James Baldwin. Here, in an interview with Kenneth Clark, Baldwin gives his perspective on MLK, Malcolm X and the major questions concerning civil rights and Americanism.
