Eddie S. Glaude Jr. — On James Baldwin, White America, & Valuing All Human Life

Eddie S. Glaude Jr. — On James Baldwin, White America, & Valuing All Human Life

Eddie Glaude Jr. is amazing! And he has a remarkable bio. It’s so remarkable that I’ll just link to it instead of trying to summarize it for you here.

I hadn’t heard of Eddie until 2 months ago when my Priest brought him up during one of our conversations. I left our conversation and immediately bought his latest book Begin Again: James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our OwnHoly shit! I mean, I’ve always been a massive fan of Jame Baldwin’s life and work, but this book wrecked me. I teeter-tottered between hope and despair the entire time.
