How Bigger Was Born

The password is biggerplease.

Classic Buggy from 2015: This is a “documentary” of the songwriting process for the song “Bigger,” which took inspiration from Richard Wright’s foreword to Native Son (also titled “How ‘Bigger’ was Born”), as well as from James Baldwin’s critique of Wright’s novel in his essays “Everybody’s Protest Novel” and “Many Thousands Gone.” The overwrought and self-indulgent project was made available only for private viewing with friends and family, for as long as they can stand it.
