“JAMES BALDWIN’S PARIS. MY PARIS”

Our Special Guest Is Charles Reese.

Actor, Author, Educator And Cultural Architect for Public Engagement.

CHARLES REESE will bring his unique theatrical experience of poetry/spoken word, prose and history-telling to re-ignite the fiery spirit of the
legendary writer and expatriate, James Arthur Baldwin (1924 -1987).

Charles is compelling and inspirational and will share his vision of contemporary Paris, so different from the legendary Paris of James Baldwin in the 1950s.

“James Baldwin was an African-American novelist, essayist, playwright, poet and social critic. His essays, as collected in
Notes of a Native Son (1955), explore palpable yet unspoken intricacies of racial, sexual, and class distinctions in Western societies, most notably in mid-20th-century

America, and their inevitable if unnameable tensions.[1] Some Baldwin essays are book-length, for instance The Fire Next Time (1963),
No Name in the Street (1972),

and The Devil Finds Work (1976). His second novel isGiovanni’s Room, written in 1956 well before gay rights were widely espoused in America.[2] ” (Source: Wikipedia.org)

James Baldwin is a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor.
