James Baldwin (1924 - 1987) was an African-American novelist, probably best
known for his novel Go Tell it on the Mountain. Most of Baldwin's work deals
with racial and sexual issues in the United States. Much of his work is
informed by his homosexuality.
Baldwin's father, David Baldwin, was a preacher and a former slave; James
was the first of nine children. Baldwin left the United States in 1948 to
live in Paris, where Richard Wright, whom Baldwin called "the greatest black
writer in the world for me", had moved earlier. Wright and Baldwin were
friends, and Baldwin titled a collection of essays Notes of a Native Son, in
clear reference to Wright's enraged and despairing novel Native Son.
