In the Legacy of James Baldwin: Ta-Nehisi Coates’s and Imani Perry’s Letters to Black Boys

Free
Sat May 14, 3:00 - 5:00 PM (EDT)
Arise for Social Justice, 38 School Street, Springfield, MA  

In this session, using contemplative (mindful) attentiveness, participants will communally read selections from Coates’ Between the World and Me and Perry’s Breathe. In these letters to their sons, race, racism and the challenges of being a Black boy in America are highlighted. Through a facilitated dialogue, the significance of these writings, given the current political and cultural landscape, will be explored and reflected upon.
