James Baldwin was an African-American writer who explored themes of racism, religion and gay rights in his novels and essays written from the 1940s to the 1970s. Baldwin had a strong sense of justice and he attacked racism, white supremacy and homophobia in his writings. His main message is about love: all people deserve to be treated with love and should be allowed to love anyone they wish. We will have a story for the children about Harlem, the neighborhood where Baldwin grew up. Join us as we explore Baldwin's ideology which is still relevant today and reminds us that we have work to do to fight racism and homophobia.
