James Baldwin

James Baldwin was a Black, gay writer and activist who fought for social change during the mid-20th century. His masterful work often focused on the Black experience and inequalities he witnessed in America. In this quote, he recognizes that not every injustice can be made right, but unless weaknesses in society are faced, positive change will never come about. You must acknowledge a problem is present before you can ever begin to deconstruct it. His words encourage and promote hope for all those who fight uphill battles.
