A Quote a Day to keep the Lockdown Blues Away: Day 81


James Baldwin

James Arthur Baldwin was an incredible American novelist, playwright, essayist, poet, and activist born on August 2, 1924. Baldwin was revolutionary with his liberating views towards racial equality and gay liberation, including these subjects throughout his literary work.

His work of ‘Remember This House‘ and ‘If Beale Street Could Talk‘ have been adapted into Academy Award Winning films, both of which highlight the issue of racism. Read some of his novels, ‘Another Country‘ and ‘Tell Me How Long The Train’s Been Gone‘, where he incorporates his revolutionary views regarding homosexuality and racial equality.


I am going to be doing my best to use my platform as a way to support #blacklivesmatter. Do your best to spread awareness and highlight the importance of this movement.

My biological clock is ticking and I don’t want to bring children into a world where racism exists.
