James Baldwin: [voice over] When I was growing up, I was trying to make a connection between the life I saw and the life I lived. There are days when you wonder what your role is in this country, and what your future is in it. This is one of them. The thing that tormented me the most was the very thing that connected me to all the people who are alive. I’ll tell you a story if I may.
Tish Rivers: Mom?
Sharon Rivers: Yeah, baby.
Alonzo ‘Fonny’ Hunt: I’m sorry, baby. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I love you, you know that.
Tish Rivers: I do, and I understand what you’re going through, because I’m with you.
