Nobody Knows My Name

Just finished reading Another Country by James Baldwin and I was glad to find this interview* dating from 1961; talking about Bessie Smith, why Baldwin left for Europe and the difficulties he encountered while writing his first novel and living as a Black American in his own country.

Bessie Smith - Backwater Blues (1933)

*Interview by Studs Terkel
