James Baldwin’s Talk To Teachers

Here’s a good link for this speech: https://www.zinnedproject.org/materials/baldwin-talk-to-teachers

Paragraph by paragraph, what do you think James Baldwin is saying in this speech he gave in October 1963 (about 5 weeks before the President of the US was assassinated)? After your interpretation of each paragraph (can be brief, no long quotes needed; I want your thoughts), what do you think is his overall point about race and education in the US?
