James Baldwin LP

James Baldwin, was one of our literary heroes, not just for his writing dealing with racism and black issues, but for also his early work addressing male homosexuality. The album I am showcasing in this blog entry, recorded in 1967, includes Baldwin reading from two of his novels addressing homosexuality, “Giovanni’s Room,” (1956), and “Another Country,” (1962). These selections can be heard on the following page of my website.
