Film: The Price of the Ticket. This inspiring
documentary about one of the 20th century's greatest
writers traces his development from a teenaged
preacher in 1930s Harlem to a writer in post-war Paris
and a leader of the U.S. Black civil rights movement
of the ‘60s. Baldwin wrote prophetically about race,
sexuality, class and the necessity for fundamental
social change. Americans of every walk of life have
been influenced by this man's ideas whether they have
ever heard his name or not. Come find out more about
his life and his heroic battle against racism.
Revolutionary poet Nellie Wong will lead a discussion
after the film.

A delicious Southern Gumbo dinner will be served at
6:00pm before the movie. The film begins at 7:30pm.
Door donation is $3.00 for the movie; dinner donation
is $8.50. Sliding scale and work exchanges are
available for students and low-income people.
