Left of Black Interview

Ed Pavlic on Who Can Afford to Improvise?


"Ed Pavlic, author of Fordham Press’ Who Can Afford to Improvise?: James Baldwin and Black Music, the Lyric and the Listeners, was recently interviewed on an episode of Left of Black on The Root, and the interview has now been published. Tsitsi Ella Jaji, a Duke Professor, speaks with Pavli? about his Fall 2015 book, and together they zero in on lyricism and what that is. They discuss how Baldwin referred to himself as a poet, even though he did not write much poetry at all. Going off of this fact, Jaji and Pavli? focus on what it really means to be a poet and how to make a difference on the world with your work."
