Library Live at Labyrinth: Steve Schapiro, Eddie Glaude Jr. and Daniel Baldwin in Conversation on “The Fire Next Time” by James Baldwin
November 12, 2019, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Celebrated photographer Steve Schapiro, known for his evocative images of the Civil Rights movement and iconic film and pop culture photography, will discuss the new edition of James Baldwin’s classic “The Fire Next Time,” in conversation with Princeton professor Eddie Glaude Jr. and Baldwin’s nephew, Daniel Baldwin.
In a new edition from Taschen Books, Baldwin’s powerful prose about the black experience in America is enhanced with photography by Schapiro, who accompanied the author through the South during the ’60s for Life magazine.
Glaude is the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University. He is the author of “Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul” and “In a Shade of Blue: Pragmatism and the Politics of Black America.” His upcoming book is “James Baldwin’s America, 1963-1972.”
Daniel Baldwin, nephew of James Baldwin, will join the conversation to share some personal stories and memories.
Presented in partnership with Labyrinth Books and the Paul Robeson House of Princeton.
