James Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket

Tuesday, February 7th
7:00 pm 

James BaldwinJames Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket presents an intimate portrait of one of the most celebrated African-American writers of the Civil Rights Era.

Through unnarrated archival footage and personal interviews, this documentary offers a unique window into the life of author and activist James Baldwin. The film explores how Baldwin – born black, poor, gay and gifted – came to become “a prophetic voice that called Americans to confront their shared racial tragedy.” The story of his life is both a social critique as well as a timely plea for equality.

“Stays with you after the program ends.”
