"And so on into the night, James Baldwin, novelist, agitator, playwright (here with actor Otis Young of Charlie) and all-around public man."
“His attention is close, punctuated with pats, touches and quizzical looks, as here, with a schoolteacher who is one of his fans, in a Village eatery.”
“There may be no such thing as a perfect stranger after James Baldwin has passed through. In public places he seems open to the world at large, stranger or friend, and listens actively as he talks."
