James Baldwin on Richard Wright:
I had identified myself with him long before we met: in a sense by no means metaphysical, his example had helped me to survive. He was black, he was young, he had come out of Mississippi and the Chicago slums, and he was a writer. He proved it could be done — proved it to me, and gave me an arm against all the others who assured me it could not be done.

James Baldwin à propos de Richard WrightJe me suis identifié à lui bien avant qu’on se rencontre. Dans un sens non métaphysique, son exemple m’a aidé à survivre. Il était noir, jeune et il venait du Mississippi, des bas fonds de Chicago et était écrivain. Il a prouvé qu’on peut le faire, prouvé à moi et m’a tendu la main pendant que tous les autres m’assuraient que ce n’était pas possible.
