James Baldwin in the spring of 1963, as he’s driven around San Francisco to meet with members of the local African-American community.

Baldwin reflects on the racial inequality that African-Americans are forced to confront and at one point tries to lift the morale of a young man by expressing his conviction that: “There will be a Negro president of this country but it will not be the country that we are sitting in now.”
