Yes of course, but ... Derrida to Genet on commitment in favour of Jackson
Mikkel Bolt Rasmussen, pages -

Abstract

The essay analyses the letter that Jacques Derrida sent to Jean Genet in 1971 as a contribution to an anthology compiled in honour of George Jackson who was imprisoned at Soledad Prison. Derrida had some reservations towards the attempt to get French writers and intellectuals to defend Jackson, not because he did not support the fight of the oppressed black population in the US, but because he did not want to speak in their name, thereby reproducing the very submission that had to be critiqued.
