On James Baldwin’s 90th birthday, was he the Malcolm X of 20th century literature?

I need to look more into his work. I didn’t even know about him. And I agree with his statement. “I love America more than any other country in the world and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually. ~James Baldwin” And thank God we have the freedom to do that in this country.
