Book Discussion at Blue Hill Library

March 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Weekly on the same day until Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Former professors Bernadette and Vivodh Anand invite the public to participate in a book discussion of James Baldwin and Raoul Peck’s “I Am Not Your Negro” at the Blue Hill Public Library. There is no charge and everyone is welcome, but registration is required and can be done on the library’s calendar at www.bhpl.net. Books are available now for participants to check out.

At the time of writer James Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of a book, “a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends — Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.” In the film, Peck “weaves together James Baldwin’s works and words to present an examination of the history of race in America.”

For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
