*WORKSHOP: The Revolutionary Queer Spirit of James Baldwin
Monday, January 22, 8-9:30 PM
199 College Avenue, New Brunswick NJ
This workshop explores the revolutionary queer spirit of James Baldwin through a guided visual art workshop and dialogue. Although he spent a great deal of his life abroad, James Baldwin (1924-1987) always remained a quintessentially American writer. Whether he was working in Paris or Istanbul, he never ceased to reflect on his experience as a black man in white America. In numerous essays, novels, plays and public speeches, the eloquent voice of James Baldwin spoke of the pain and struggle of black Americans and the saving power of brotherhood.
Presented by the Center for Social Justice and LGBTQ Communities.
