“There was something which all Black men held in common, something which cut across opposing points of view, and placed in the same context their widely dissimilar experience. What they held in common was their precarious, their unutterably painful relation to the white world. What they held in common was the necessity to remake the world…and no longer be controlled by the vision of the world and of themselves held by other people. What in sum Black men held in common was their ache to come into the world as men.”

-James Baldwin
