James Baldwin, "A Talk to Teachers"
Before it was published in The Saturday Review, the talk was delivered on October 16, 1963, as “The Negro Child – His Self-Image.” As the annotation, I am providing a quote from lint Smith’s article in the New Yorker. “A teacher, Baldwin believed, should push students to understand that the world was molded by people who came before, and that it can be remolded into something new.”
