The Contemporary Arts Center shows a documentary looking at the life and writings of James Baldwin.

The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) screens director Karen Thorsen’s James Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket (1989), a documentary which compiles archival footage of the writer’s time in New York and Paris and links his writing to discussions on race relations in the United States. The film was originally broadcast as part of American Masters on PBS.

This event is free and open to the public, but a reservation is required. For more information and to RSVP, visit the CAC’s website.
