In this lesson, students will revisit the life of James Baldwin, an African-American literary writer and critic, as well as an icon for civil and gay rights. Far ahead of his time, Baldwin was "out and proud" before that term became a popular cultural idiom. Baldwin's life illuminates not just the intersection between gay rights and civil rights, but perhaps even more importantly, the connections among self-identification, artistic expression and political activism. This lesson is part of "The Role of Gay Men and Lesbians in the Civil Rights Movement" Series.
