Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.: James Baldwin's America
Thu, Nov 10 at 2pm
Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.’s Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own is a defining book for our time, an eloquent essay that combines biography, literary and social criticism, and history to make the argument that America stands on the precipice of a decision about its identity. Baldwin’s life and writing serve as a pathway for Glaude to examine his own experiences, beliefs and feelings to interrogate racism in today’s America. He discusses the insights and inspiration he has gained from Baldwin with Armand Derfner, civil rights lawyer and co-author of Justice Deferred. Eddie S. Glaude Jr. is the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor and chair of the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University.
