☯ Full Synopsis : "Au soir de ses quatorze ans, dans une boutique désaffectée de Harlem, au milieu des prières et des trépignements cadencés de ses frères, au rythme hallucinant des tambourins, John Grimes traverse un moment essentiel, une nuit de révélation personnelle, entre crise existentielle et épiphanie. Dans ce premier roman écrit en 1952, James Baldwin raconte, avec des accents d'une sincérité déchirante, à la fois son expérience et une odyssée collective, celle d'une famille aux attitudes violemment contrastées, celle d'un peuple venant du Sud rural dans un ghetto du Nord. Ce texte, devenu un classique, est un des premiers livres sur la condition des Noirs."Article| James Baldwin| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Never before available, the unexpurgated last interview with James Baldwin “I was not born to be what someone said I was. I was not born to be defined by someone else, but by myself, and myself only.” When, in the fall of 1987, the poet Quincy Troupe traveled to the south of France to interview James Baldwin, Baldwin’s brother David told him to ask Baldwin about everything—Baldwin was critically ill and David knew that this might be the writer’s last chance to speak at length about his life and work. The result is one of the most eloquent and revelatory interviews of Baldwin’s career, a conversation that ranges widely over such topics as his childhood in Harlem, his close friendship with Miles Davis, his relationship with writers like Toni Morrison and Richard Wright, his years in France, and his ever-incisive thoughts on the history of race relations and the African-American experience. Also collected here are significant interviews from other moments in Baldwin’s life, including an in-depth interview conducted by Studs Terkel shortly after the publication of Nobody Knows My Name. These interviews showcase, above all, Baldwin’s fearlessness and integrity as a writer, thinker, and individual, as well as the profound struggles he faced along the way."Article| James Baldwin| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Les quatorze essais regroupés dans ce volume, publiés à l’origine dans divers journaux et revues, couvrent une période allant de 1960 à 1985. James Baldwin y évoque les marches pour les droits civiques, les raisons de son exil en France, ses rencontres avec Martin Luther King, sa critique de l’éducation aux États-Unis ou encore sa célébration de la langue noire. Explorant les tensions et non-dits qui touchent son pays, Baldwin offre une analyse pertinente, sévère et subtile de la société américaine qui n’a rien perdu de son actualité ni de sa nécessité. Ces textes dressent le portrait d’un homme dont la perspicacité, l’engagement et l’écriture ont ouvert la voie à de futurs grands écrivains noirs américains. « Je suis entièrement redevable à la prose de James Baldwin. » Toni Morrison"Article| James Baldwin| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : ""There's no way not to suffer. But you try all kinds of ways to keep from drowning in it." The men and women in these eight short fictions grasp this truth on an elemental level, and their stories, as told by James Baldwin, detail the ingenious and often desperate ways in which they try to keep their head above water. It may be the heroin that a down-and-out jazz pianist uses to face the terror of pouring his life into an inanimate instrument. It may be the brittle piety of a father who can never forgive his son for his illegitimacy. Or it may be the screen of bigotry that a redneck deputy has raised to blunt the awful childhood memory of the day his parents took him to watch a black man being murdered by a gleeful mob. By turns haunting, heartbreaking, and horrifying--and informed throughout by Baldwin's uncanny knowledge of the wounds racism has left in both its victims and its perpetrators--Going to Meet the Man is a major work by one of our most important writers."Article| James Baldwin| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "" Ce que les Blancs doivent faire, c'est essayer de trouver au fond d'eux-mêmes pourquoi, tout d'abord, il leur a été nécessaire d'avoir un "nègre', parce que je ne suis pas un "nègre'. Je ne suis pas un nègre, je suis un homme. Mais si vous pensez que je suis un nègre, ça veut dire qu'il vous en faut un. " James Baldwin. Dans ses dernières années, le grand écrivain américain James Baldwin a commencé la rédaction d'un livre sur l'Amérique à partir des portraits de ses trois amis assassinés, figures de la lutte pour les droits civiques : Medgar Evers, Malcolm X et Martin Luther King Jr. Partant de ce livre inachevé, Raoul Peck a reconstitué la pensée de Baldwin en s'aidant des notes prises par l'écrivain, ses discours et ses lettres. Il en a fait un documentaire – salué dans le monde entier et sélectionné aux Oscars – aujourd'hui devenu un livre, formidable introduction à l'oeuvre de James Baldwin. Un voyage kaléidoscopique qui révèle sa vision tragique, profonde et pleine d'humanité de l'histoire des Noirs aux États-Unis et de l'aveuglement de l'Occident. " Attention, chef-d'oeuvre !

☯ Full Synopsis : "Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country is a novel of passions--sexual, racial, political, artistic--that is stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, depicting men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime. In a small set of friends, Baldwin imbues the best and worst intentions of liberal America in the early 1970s."Article| James Baldwin| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "James Baldwin was one of the great writers of the last century. In works that have become part of the American canon—Go Tell It on a Mountain, Giovanni’s Room, Another Country, The Fire Next Time, and The Evidence of Things Not Seen—he explored issues of race and racism in America, class distinction, and sexual difference. A gay, African American writer who was born in Harlem, he found the freedom to express himself living in exile in Paris. When he returned to America to cover the Civil Rights movement, he became an activist and controversial spokesman for the movement, writing books that became bestsellers and made him a celebrity, landing him on the cover of Time. In this biography, which Library Journal called “indispensable,” David Leeming creates an intimate portrait of a complex, troubled, driven, and brilliant man. He plumbs every aspect of Baldwin’s life: his relationships with the unknown and the famous, including painter Beauford Delaney, Richard Wright, Lorraine Hansberry, Marlon Brando, Harry Belafonte, Lena Horne, and childhood friend Richard Avedon; his expatriate years in France and Turkey; his gift for compassion and love; the public pressures that overwhelmed his quest for happiness, and his passionate battle for black identity, racial justice, and to “end the racial nightmare and achieve our country.”"Article| David Leeming| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Si Beale Street pouvait parler, elle raconterait à peu près ceci : Tish, 19 ans, est amoureuse de Fonny, un jeune sculpteur noir. Accusé d’avoir violé une Portoricaine, ce dernier est jeté en prison. Quand Tish découvre qu’elle est enceinte, les deux familles se mettent en campagne, à la recherche de preuves qui le disculperont. Pendant ce temps, Tish et Fonny ne peuvent qu’attendre, portés par leur amour, un amour qui transcende le désespoir, la colère et la haine. Sensuel, violent et profondément émouvant, Si Beale Street pouvait parler a le goût doux-amer des blues tant aimés de James Baldwin. Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Magali Berger. Préface de Geneviève Brisac."Article| James Baldwin| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "" Témoigner de la vérité ", telle est la tâche que s'assigna Baldwin. Héritier de la tradition du prêche et du sermon des Églises afro-américaines, il n'eut de cesse de confronter l'Amérique à ses mensonges et démons. Dans la tourmente des mouvements noirs, il devint une voix - prophétique - celle d'un peuple " invisible ", opprimé, demandant reconnaissance. Dans ses essais enflammés ou didactiques, ses romans provocateurs ou lyriques, ses entretiens et son engagement politique, il révéla l'évidence des choses qu'on ne dit pas, afin qu'un jour l'Amérique vive enfin dans la réalité."Article| Benoît Depardieu| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "One of the most prolific and influential African American writers, James Baldwin was for many a harbinger of hope, a man who traversed the genres of art-writing novels, essays, and poetry. James Baldwin Now takes advantage of the latest interdisciplinary work to understand the complexity of Baldwin's vision and contributions without needing to name him as exclusively gay, expatriate, black, or activist. It was, in fact, Baldwin who said, "it is quite impossible to write a worthwhile novel about a Jew or a Gentile or a Homosexual, for people refuse . . . to function in so neat and one-dimensional a fashion." McBride has gathered a unique group of new scholars to interrogate Baldwin's life, his presence, and his political thought and work. James Baldwin Now finally addresses the man who spoke, and continues to speak, so eloquently to crucial issues of the twentieth century."Article| Dwight McBride| Statement ..."
