Wednesday Wisdom: James Baldwin

For this final Wednesday of Black History Month, let’s hear some wise words from Mr. James  Baldwin about the importance of art:

“Art has to be a kind of confession…if you can examine and face your life, you can discover the terms with which you are connected to other lives, and they can discover, too, the terms with which they are connected to other people…Art would not be important if life were not important, and life is important.” -James Baldwin, WFMT interview in 1961

Keep writing, drawing, gaming, teaching, training, and living a life of art to show that life is important, friends!
