No Name in the Street

No Name in the Street - James Baldwin Ένα ισχυρό σχόλιο πάνω στις πολιτικές και κοινωνικές αγωνίες της σύγχρονης ιστορίας της Αμερικής. Ο Baldwin εδώ ακολουθεί τις δολοφονίες, τις αστικές ταραχές, την αυξημένη φυλετική πόλωση των καιρών του προσφέροντας την προσωπική του μαρτυρία και δίνοντας έμφαση στους Malcolm X και Martin Luther King Jr., καθώς και στην πορεία του 1963 στην Ουάσινγκτον.
I'm black and I'm proud: yet, I suppose that the most accurate term, now, for this history, this particular and peculiar danger, as well as for all persons produced out of it and struggling in it, is: Afro-American. Which is but a wedding, however, of two confusions, an arbitrary linking of two undefined and currently undefinable proper nouns. I mean that, in the case of Africa, Africa is still chained to Europe, and exploited by Europe, and Europe and America are chained together; and as loong as this is so, it is hard to speak of Africa except as a cradle and a potential.
