This two-part workshop on the life and work of James Baldwin is offered by the K12 History Institute, the Western Mass Writers Project and the James Baldwin Project. The first session (11/2) will focus on why to teach Baldwin, the second on how.

The first meeting will feature a screening and discussion of the film The Price of the Ticket, which includes numerous interviews with Baldwin. The second meeting will include discussion of a short piece of Baldwin’s writing and strategies for teaching it. If there is interest, this program may develop into an extended series or even a course. A light supper will be served. This series is especially designed for educators, but is open to all. Free.

The second session will be held on Nov 30. Details here.
