DAILY: February 26, 2020

This is James Baldwin week here at the DAILY.  When I was employed at the Curran in San Francisco as the Editor-at-Large, one of my favorite shows on which I worked was Stew’s Notes on a Native Song which he cowrote with Heidi Rodewald. It is a tribute to Baldwin.  Here is the rock anthem “Jimmy Take Me Higher” they wrote for that remarkable revue as Stew is backed up by his band The Negro Problem.



Baldwin depicted as Robert Johnson. Stew at the mic.
