But Then You Read: James Baldwin


The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture presents a range of artists, cultural producers, and scholars in a daylong read of James Baldwin. The Schomburg’s recent acquisition of Baldwin’s personal papers includes biographical sketches, correspondence, interviews, awards, travel records, and fan mail. These items, alongside his published writings and novels, provide a storehouse of material that celebrate the brilliance and beauty of Baldwin.
