August 2nd, 2012 — Eighty-eight years from the day that James Baldwin was born, on a Saturday in 1924. For the man who turned an arbitrary day into a date to mark, a few of his words woven into scenes of the Paris streets he loved to walk.
“the intangible dreams of people have a tangible effect on the world.”
“Experience, which destroys innocence, also leads one back to it.”
“I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also, much more than that. So are we all.”
