James Baldwin was a remarkable novelist, a legendary essayist, a civil rights activist, and one of the most influential American writers of the 20th century. Baldwin once said, "You write in order to change the world, knowing perfectly well that you can’t, but also knowing literature is indispensable to the world... The world changes according to the way people see it, and if you alter even but a millimeter the way people look at reality, then you can change it." Join this class and allow the months of reading, analyzing, and marveling at Baldwin’s insight and eloquence transform your thinking and feelings about race, America, history, love, hate, and much more.
