        All Men are Brothers | American Masters

        This video segment from American Masters’ James Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket illustrates the activist’s intolerance for violence or racial hatred expressed by anyone, black or white. In the mid-1960s, Baldwin’s principles put him in conflict with Eldridge Cleaver and a new black militant faction, who advocated a reciprocal response to the violence they often experienced.  Baldwin struggled with the paradox of acknowledging the violent conditions facing many black Americans and his advocacy for the brotherhood of man. Baldwin could never truly join the black militants as he strongly believed that "the world is held together by the love and the passion of a very few people."
