Contemporary Culture • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1964

Narrator JD Jackson has a way of projecting a calm yet alert tone of awareness. This short piece, which James Baldwin wrote in the 1960s, is philosophical. His thoughts on America's material conditions and how people love and don't love one another are just as relevant now. Jackson delivers a sense of clarity and urgent thoughtfulness when he speaks. His tone is reflective, given the topics--history, mortality, identity, and love. Such complexities are brought together at the end when Princeton professor Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., provides an afterword, which Jackson narrates masterfully. Listeners will enter Baldwin's mind as they enjoy Jackson's well-paced and probing narration.
