PRA Archive #: 

An outstanding panel on Black perceptions of the American setting in art, mainly literature and drama, featuring James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, Lorraine Hansberry and Emile Capouya, and Alfred Kazin. Hansberry excoriates the "arbitrary and superficial approach to Negro character of white writers." Baldwin describes his sense of the polarity between being a writer and a Black American in a "state of rage." Poet Hughes explains himself boldly as a "propagandist."
