About This Item

Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Co., (1971). First edition. The remarkable transcript of 7.5 hours of dialogue conducted over two days in August 1970 between the famed author(s) and anthropologist that still resonates today. Often heart-achingly so. Baldwin speaking on police violence: "The police in this country make no distinction between a Black Panther or a black lawyer or my brother or me. The cops aren't going to ask me my name before they pull the trigger." But sometimes at least showing movement in one way or another. MEAD speaking on "parallelism between race and sex": "...Ralph Bunche and I used to laugh because there were parts of the Cosmos Club he couldn't go in and there were parts I couldn't go in ... [both] ... based on prejudice." 8vo quarter red cloth over black paper boards; 256 pages. Good or better with a slight spine lean and several scrapes to the black paper covering. In bright, near fine dust jacket with one small tear internally mended with archival tape. Increasingly scarce.
