    Example text

    As a classmate. Addison had studied, marched, debated, and protested with a varied array of New York leftists (black, white, and Puerto Rican) during his student days at the City College of New York. He had studied black literature and culture with James Emanuel, and was bent on writing an MA thesis on J. Saunders Redding’s memoir, On Being Negro in America (1951). When I met Addison, he was busily (in the great American vein of self-invention) shaping a persona as a black, pipe-smoking, tweed-wearing, affected-accent, existential intellectual, sojourning among western “provincials” for a season.

    I had indicated that what was being proposed as an adequate Black Studies plan at Yale was flawed, bogus; perhaps inspired by goodwill, but still not allowing requisite thought or resources to possibilities of a black-urban/university paradigm of praxis and knowledge. I was young and cocky . . but CRAZY? Where did that come from? All of this swirled through my mind in T. ’s office. ” The semiotic field and cast of characters from that autumn afternoon at Yale – in one form or another – have played themselves out at myriad sites of white authority, “philanthropy,” power, and academic “planning” (on behalf of the “Negro”) during multiple decades of my life and times in the American academy.

    I think this shift of intellectual focus in the lives of so many academics has – during the past 18 Black Studies: A Yale Story three decades – affected the American academy in profound ways. At the very least, a traditionally all-white American academy has been compelled in three decades to see – let us not be too grandiose – at least, DIFFERENCE as a legitimate ground for serious intellectual investigation and challenging scholarly enterprise, where it once beheld CRAZY. Only a story The foregoing ruminations are just a story.
