CAAPS Director Fredrick Harris' essay "James Baldwin, 1963, and the House that Race Built" is featured in the recent edition of Transition: The Magazine of Africa and the Disapora. Although the activism of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X continues to receive the most attention, Harris argues that James Baldwin is better situated to explain why black Americans continue to be pressed to the margins of American society.
