Baldwin's critique of Native Son had heralded the demise of the master narrative (grande recits) before Jean-Francois Lyotard had recorded what he sensed, and rather late, as "the post-modern condition." In the early 1950's Baldwin had said "The trouble with Bigger (and us) is not that he is Black or poor or hungry, but because he has accepted the theologies that deny him life." What my students rightly reclaim in his name is his foundational thought under-pinning Women Studies, masculinity, racialistic mythism, diversity, sexuality (only now called Queer Studies), and energy--in a word all the discourses that now drive the Academy, and not so amazingly, the world.
