This paper examines James Baldwin's book, "Notes of a Native Son", published in 1955, which is a collection of nine essays he had written on the state of what were then called "Negroes" in the United States. It looks at how, in his essays, he notes the interface between his personal life, the social atmosphere of the day, the political movements of the day, and even what was going on in entertainment. The result is essays that give a view of the Negro experience in the 1950s that is both broad and deep.
