I listened to the audio book specifically for James Baldwin's interview, which I loved. America is now in the times he warns about in the interview by not facing the consequences of systemic racism when we should have. The other interviews were icing on the cake.

Absolutely fantastic. I loved virtually every interview and was so pleased to hear these great snippets of history. My absolute favorite was Calvin Trilliin but many were just very precious.

Not much of an interviewer. Very disappointing.
