Thanks to sharp-eyed friend, Linda Work, I read an article on James Baldwin within days of publishing my last blog.

Seems my hero attracted the attention of the FBI as well as my own.

Quoting from Why Did the FBI Spy on James Baldwin?, By Hannah K. Gold, The Intercept, 17 August 2015. (reprinted in RSN, Reader Supported News):

“ James Baldwin’s FBI file contains 1,884 pages of documents, collected from 1960 until the early 1970.”

Quite the story.
