Season: Baldwin 97

In honour of James Baldwin's would be 97th Birthday, we are hosting a screening of the documentary film about his life and legacy James Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket

Long Table Discussion: James Baldwin: The Price of The Ticket will be the catalyst for hopeful conversations about issues made more urgent in our collective consciousness in recent years including gender and racial equality. We cannot effectively envision a future without understanding the past and how we got to where we are.

JAMES BALDWIN:  THE PRICE OF THE TICKET now considered a classic, is a social critique; an emotional portrait and a passionate plea for human equality. Without using narration and while exploring what it means to be born black, impoverished, gay and gifted – in a world that has yet to understand that “all men are brothers”, the film allows Baldwin to tell his own story and, in many ways, our collective story.
