This month the New Yorker Articles group will discuss the work of James Baldwin (1924 – 1987), an American writer, poet, social critic, and activist. We will focus on his work for the civil rights movement. Using an essay he wrote in 1962 for the New Yorker “Letter From a Region of My Mind,” the movie, “I Am Not Your Negro,” and a podcast from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, “A Baldwin Revival: In Good Times and Bad,” we will explore how his work remains relevant and alive today. Please join us and take part in a conversation that motivates and inspires us to improve the human condition both individually and collectively.
