Teaching Baldwin Wed. February 17, 2021 2:00-4:00pm on Zoom $25.00 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. An essayist, novelist and a Black gay man,Baldwin’s acerbic analysis of America is still relevant as are his questions about this country's desire for a more perfect union in the time of Black Lives Matter. This workshop will provide insightful avenues to discuss the politics of democracy in a racially charged time, by infusing Baldwin's work into the conversation and address the humanity of a multi-racial nation. It will be led by journalist, Two River Theater Community Relations Manager and VP of the T. Thomas Fortune Foundation Gilda Rogers, with special guest Alan C. Burgess.
