CHICAGO-Author James Bald-
win, apparently still suffering
from the exhaustion which caused
him to cancel a previous appear-
ance here, told a capacity audience3
Tuesday at the University of Chi-
cago that an artist is one who
"helps you see reality again."
"The artist is possessed of a vi-1
sion of a New Jerusalem," he said.
"This vision is not based on fan-
tasy, it is based on what he has
seen of human beings. What he
has seen of them proves that peo-
ple can be better than they are."
Misled by Myths
Americans have been getting
away from reality for generations,
Baldwin declared. They have been
misled by a false history filled
with founding heroes and happy
pioneers. Incredible American
myths, he said, have grown up
arouid the history of the Negro.
"Forgetting that you brought us
here because you needed cheap
labor to get rich, you have come
to pretend that you brought us
from Africa to the 'promised land,'
that Negroes like slavery," het
"The people who have invented
the 'nigger' experience such a
moral chaos that in 1963 we see
dogs sent after children. These
people have lapsed from reality,"
"Only the Negro in this country
knows that life is tragic. He repre-
sents that level of experience
which we find in Oedipus. Rex
and from w h i c h Americans
thought they had escaped when
they crossed the ocean."
But Baldwin expressed a con-
tinyted faith in the goodness in
man, the ability of man "to change
"We must descend into the sea
of human experience and try to
bob up into the air of human re-
sponsibility. We have conquered a
continent but we have yet to con-
quer a country."
