But Then You Read

September 22, 2020

The Schomburg Center will present a range of artists, cultural producers, and scholars to deliver 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.

Presented in collaboration with TimesTalks.
