Teaching Baldwin: THE ART of Social Justice
02/17/2021 at 2:00 p.m.
James Baldwin was one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, and a journey through his work reveals the American tragedy of race and class and their effects on history and politics in our democratic society. Essayist, novelist and black homosexual, Baldwin’s acerbic analysis of America is still relevant today, as are his questions about this country’s desire for a more perfect union during the Black Lives Matter era. This workshop will provide insightful avenues for discussing the politics of democracy in a race-charged age, infusing Baldwin’s work into the conversation and touching on the humanity of a multiracial nation. It will be directed by Gilda Rogers, journalist, responsible for community relations at Two River Theater and vice-president of the T. Thomas Fortune Foundation, with special guest Alan C. Burgess.
