Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Celebration 2017: James Baldwin: Collected Essay
Start Date: 2/22/2017Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 2/22/2017

Event Description:
James Baldwin was among the twentieth century's most insightful thinkers and writers. Especially in his essays, Baldwin demonstrates his lyrical genius and uncompromising soul, revealing the reciprocal roles of character, culture, and consciousness in shaping our individual identities and collective destiny. Baldwin articulates difficult truths about our most destructive impulses-like fear and rage-as precisely as he speaks to the nature of our highest virtues, like love. Because of the depths of his feeling and self-knowledge, Baldwin's essays can serve as an inspiration for thinking about how we accept ourselves and one another. Because of the courage of his convictions, Baldwin's writing can serve us in the present moment as a guide for thinking about the role of the individual within an unjust society. Through weekly discussions beginning in January and lasting as long as our energy sustains us, this working group will focus on individual essays by James Baldwin-written between the 1950s and the 1980s-in order to connect, share, and build an intellectual community with the goal of sharpening our intellectual honesty, building emotional intelligence and self-awareness, and celebrating human dignity.
