"The white m'an tries to impose on the black man images he el, "'If Talk." "Black would like to see him have, and ic wants the black man to live his images. "During the civil rights adventure of the '60s, something lappened which nobody noticed. White Americans iwere stripped naked and forced to look at themselves. They found they could not be respected. "Democracy has never been tried here,' 'he- continued. "By my definition democracy means no one is penalized for color or class, or forced down to the lowest common denominator." Baldwin advocates "the high est form of socialism" to replace what he calls the "dying" American system of democratic government and capitalist econ- my. "I don't mean a socialism like Hitler's or Stalin's, but the purest kind, where the \yorld's wealth and resources will belong to .the world," · 'SEEKS BETTERMENT The writer says he h a s , devoted his professional life to bettering the lot of black people the world over.

That he is trapped was proved in the '60s. "We are going to get out of this nightmare, and when we gel out, the while man will also gel out." Baldwin's.prowess as a prog- tiosticator was -noted ""recently when he received the" Centennial Medal of the Cathedral Cliurch of St. John the Divine, an annual award honoring "The Artist as Prophet." 'This artisl demonstrated his prophetic powers in 19C3 with the pnblica lion of "Tlie Fire Nexl Time,' a collodion or essays which forewarned of the intense sum mer race riots o[ the late 1960s Some literary critics have be rated Baldwin , for hammering at t h e ' t h e m e of racial injustice that pervades his work. 'They complain that his preoccupation with tlie topic has made h" work dated. To this 'criticism Baldwin retorts, "Thai's thci problem. You can't push the facl of man's injustice to mar too far. Their real complaint i t h a t they just don't want to hear it at all!" THEME CONTINUES Tlie author vows to conlinu with the racial theme. It wil form the core of his next novel "Just Above My Head," abou a gospel singer and his brother and a play he is readying .to the Broadway stage, "The Lif and Times of Sir Shine," de picting the life of black corned an Bird Williams. As a black writer, Baldwin maintains that he is not th trumpeter of his race. "Yes, am of course a black writer but first I am a writer. I can write for all black people. !
