DEAD: ON THIS DATE

James Baldwin
-American writer (Go Tell it on the Mountain)


James Arthur Baldwin (August 2, 1924 – November 30, 1987) was an American novelist and social critic. His essays, as collected in Notes of a Native Son(1955), explore intricacies of racial, sexual, and class distinctions in Western societies, most notably in mid-20th-century America. Some of Baldwin’s essays are book-length, including The Fire Next Time(1963), No Name in the Street (1972), and The Devil Finds Work (1976). An unfinished manuscript, Remember This House, was expanded and adapted for cinema as the Academy Award–nominated documentary film I Am Not Your Negro.

DEATH: Early on December 1, 1987, Baldwin died from stomach cancer in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France. He was buried at the Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, near New York City.
