We are very excited to offer another opportunity to experience A Night With James Baldwin.

This ground-breaking event makes an incredible earth shattering promise – You will never be the same again!

The film will be introduced by Dr Michelle Asantewa PhD, followed by a screening of the acclaimed Oscar nominated James Baldwin documentary «I Am Not Your Negro» from renowned Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck.

In a time of polarisation, division and hate, James Baldwin’s words are hauntingly brought to life, reminding us of a by-gone era that still very much resonates with current times and the darkening clouds of hate that encircle human society; a hate that gave birth to the much-hated illusory figure that was ‘The Nigger’.

James Baldwin asks: Why was it important to create a ‘Nigger’ in the first place?

The film is followed by a post screening discussion and Q&A.

Dr Asantewa is joint course Leader with Tony Warner of Black History Walks on The Amazing James Baldwin Course, which was inspired by the film. Course details here: eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-amazing-james-baldwin-course-septemberoctober-tickets-35912503264

Dr Michelle Asantewa was born in Guyana, South America in 1969. She migrated to the UK where she completed her PhD. She formerly taught English Literature, Editing and Creative Writing at London Metropolitan University and currently facilitates writing workshops as an Independent Scholar. She has recently started her own publishing house Way Wive Wordz Publishing and her first novel «Elijah» and poetry collection «The Awakening and Other Poems» were the launch publications for Way Wive Wordz.
