The Spring 2021 issue of Radcliffe Magazine includes a piece about WGS Professor Robert Reid-Pharr and his forthcoming book, "James Baldwin: The Making of an American Icon." The autobiographical account of Baldwin's life "investigates how such a radical individual was able to become one of the most popularly influential intellectuals of the 20th century."

Reid-Pharr has published four books: Archives of Flesh: African America, Spain, and Post-Humanist Critique (NYU Press, 2016); Once You Go Black: Choice, Desire, and the Black American Intellectual (NYU Press, 2007); Black, Gay, Man: Essays (NYU Press, 2001); Conjugal Union: The Body, the House, and the Black American (Oxford University Press, 1999). While he was on leave for the academic year Robert was the 2020–2021 Carl and Lily Pforzheimer Foundation Fellow at the Harvard Radcliffe Institute.
