James Baldwin once said ““If I love you, I have to make you conscious of the things you don’t see.” Throughout his life Baldwin used his words to reveal difficult, complex truths about America and the world, about his communities and even about himself, because he believed truth-telling was an act of love. In this reading and discussion series, we will look at various writings from Baldwin, thinking about how his truths are still relevant in 21st century America.
