“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.” –James Baldwin. We remember the critic, playwright, poet, essayist and novelist who was born on this day in 1924. In December of 1963, shortly after the assassination of JFK, Ted Russell photographed Bob Dylan and James Baldwin for @Life as Dylan received the Tom Paine award from the Emergency Civil Liberties Committee.
