An analysis of hidden self-knowledge in James Baldwin's writing. James Baldwin is a political psychologist who seeks to understand the self through what it remains "innocent" to. I explore Baldwin's metaphors and concepts of "masked" knowledge, and argue that Baldwin translates psychological tropes into political ones.
