THE FIRST EVENT SOLD OUT VERY QUICKLY!
We are very excited to offer another opportunity to experience A Night With James Baldwin.
This ground-breaking event makes an incredible earth shattering promise – You will never be the same again!
The film will be introduced by Dr Michelle Asantewa PhD, followed by a screening of the acclaimed Oscar nominated James Baldwin documentary “I Am Not Your Negro” from renowned Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck.
In a time of polarisation, division and hate, James Baldwin’s words are hauntingly brought to life, reminding us of a by-gone era that still very much resonates with current times and the darkening clouds of hate that encircle human society; a hate that gave birth to the much-hated illusory figure that was ‘The Nigger’.
James Baldwin asks: Why was it important to create a ‘Nigger’ in the first place?
The film is followed by a post screening discussion and Q&A.
Dr Asantewa is joint course Leader with Tony Warner of Black History Walks on The Amazing James Baldwin Course, which was inspired by the film. Course details here.
