The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, in collaboration with The New York Times — TimesTalks, is excited to present a day of conversations, readings and performances with local and international artists and cultural scholars in celebration of James Baldwin.

The Schomburg’s recent acquisition of Baldwin’s personal papers includes biographical sketches, correspondence, interviews, awards, travel records and fan mail. These items, alongside his published writings and novels, provide a storehouse of material that celebrate the brilliance and beauty of Baldwin.

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” ― James Baldwin
