James Baldwin, the brilliant, unapologetic literary genius, was born 90 years ago today in Harlem. A section of East 128th Street, between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, will be renamed James Baldwin Way in his honor. In this photo, Mr. Baldwin is signing autographs for fans at Ludwigsburg High School in Germany, 1972. Photo: Regis Bossu/Stars and Stripes.
