Amiri Baraka, Leroi Jones With David Murray And Steve McCall – Class Struggle In Music I (1982)

From the album New Music – New Poetry, released in 1982.

As long as the black writer was obsessed with being an accepted, middle class, Baraka wrote, he would never be able to speak his mind, and that would always lead to failure. Baraka felt that America only made room for only white obfuscators, not black ones. [source]
