In 1965, at a critical juncture in the Civil Rights Movement, James Baldwin’s essay “The White Man’s Guilt” unmasked the myths and lies that sustain racial injustice in America. 

We’re in a comparable moment now, writes Eddie S. Glaude, Jr. in the New York Times bestseller Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons For Our Own, and “it would do us well to listen to James Baldwin tell the story of how we failed when faced with a similar choice, and how we can still muster the faith to begin again.” 

ZOOM with Glaude, Distinguished University Professor of African American Studies at Princeton, as he explores the contemporary resonances of Baldwin’s powerful and prophetic piece. There will be a brief Q&A at the end of the program; you will be able to type a question and submit it to the event moderator. Free Registration required.
