Meeting the Man: James Baldwin in Paris
A Conversation with Caryl Phillips, Darryl Pinckney, and Kaiama Glover
In 1970, a British film documentary team arrived in Paris to film a 27 minute documentary with, and about, James Baldwin. Meeting the Man is the record of a documentary that didn’t quite work out as planned. After a screening of the film, Professor Kaiama Glover will lead a conversation with Caryl Phillips and the writer and critic Darryl Pinckney about the life and work of James Baldwin, African-American artists in France, and the difficulties of navigating celebrity for such artists.
