Whatever Happened to Moral Rigor?

James Baldwin understood the difference

between empathy and approval.

 

Today,

we would rather condemn than understand.

Baldwin’s novel is a testament

to the profound change the Great Migration had on America.

 

Here, the writer joins hands with the folk singer Joan Baez

and Jim Forman, the Chairman of the S.N.C.C., as they enter Montgomery, Ala.,

during the Selma to Montgomery March for Voting Rights in March 1965.
