James Baldwin

 

Join us for an evening focusing on the life and activism of James Baldwin, organized by James Wright, African-American scholar and union activist.

Poet and author Alicia Dunnigan, writer and librarian Stephan Likosky, union activist Reginald Manning, and James Wright will address the life, work, and activism of James Baldwin.

The evening will also include a screening of I Heard It Through the Grapevine (1982).

“Produced and directed by Dick Fontaine and Pat Hartley, this is a highly personal film essay written by James Baldwin about exactly who and what survived the civil rights movement. It features Baldwin, his brother David, Chinua Achebe, Amiri Baraka, and other friends Baldwin made “on that long, long road’ through the sixties. Music by Stuff and a host of Southern voices.” (http://www.dickfontaine.com/1980page.html)

Suggested donation of $5 to benefit the Bureau. No one turned away for lack of funds.
