Voice of the Day: James Baldwin

By Administrator 01-29-2007

[T]his is the crime of which I assuse my country and my countrymen, and for which neither I nor time nor history will ever forgive them, that they have destroyed and are destroying hundreds of thousands of lives and do not know it and do not want to know it.

- James Baldwin
from The Fire Next Time
