Another Night with James Baldwin

THE FIRST EVENT SOLD OUT VERY QUICKLY!

Tickets go live on the 9th October at Midday.

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: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-amazing-james-baldwin-course-septemberoctober-tickets-35912503264
