"It was through reading [American novelist, playwright, and activist James] Baldwin with Patrick that something clicked in me. This was why I loved Baldwin: He talked openly about the struggle to feel warmth toward oneself. He'd written that questions of race operated 'to hide the graver question of the self'. It wasn't that he denied the existence of racial inequality. But the harder task was to figure 'out who one was' because and in spite of it. ... I was learning, you can't try to fill someone up with stories about the people you think he ought to [emulate such as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, or Barack Obama]. You first have to work with his sense of himself." (p. 246-7)
