"Now, it is true that the nature of society is to create, among its citizens, an illusion of safety; but it is also absolutely true that the safety is always necessarily an illusion. Artists are here to disturb the peace."

— James Baldwin

Excerpted from “An interview with James Baldwin” (1961), an interview with Studs Terkel published in Conversations with James Baldwin (Literary Conversations)
