A major figure in American literature, James Baldwin got a new light shed on his work following the Black Lives Matter movement.
Here is how James Baldwin became one of the greatest authors of the 20th century.
"No label, no slogan, no party, no skin color, and indeed no religion is more important than the human being." James Baldwin
African-American singer and musician Meshell Ndegeocello drew inspiration from James Baldwin’s truth-telling treatise on justice in America, The Fire Next Time, and from our endlessly changing world. Her resulting work is co-produced and will be presented by the Festival in the fall of 2020. Chapter & Verse: The Gospel of James Baldwin is new take on this masterpiece, reinvented to fit a digital medium and address the emancipatory fights against racism. It is a 21st century ritual tool kit for justice. A call for revolution. A gift during turbulent times.
