The sessions will focus on questions posed by James Baldwin about social justice and on the relevance of his critique of American society to the 21st century. Inspired by Baldwin’s work, we also will draw on film, music, and art to elicit discussion about our silences and what happens when we speak. The program partners include the Howe Branch of the Albany Public Library and Underground Railroad History Project.
Due to COVID, the program will be conducted virtually.
