James Baldwin broke new literary ground with his exploration of racial issues. Baldwin was profoundly marked by three distinctive identities in his life… being black… being poor, and being homosexual. Social discrimination would be a recurring theme throughout his work, especially his writing on the black experience in America. Baldwin became one of the most prominent figures of the Civil Rights Movement, and along with Richard Wright and Ralph Ellison, became spokesman for the entire generation of black writers. Blues For Mr. Charlie is James Baldwin’s best known play. Baldwin said it is based distantly on the true story of the Mississippii youth Emmett Till, who in 1955 was murdered for whistling at a white woman.
