In this fraught election year, the Center for Fiction is proud to present a special performance of James Baldwin’s essay, “The White Problem” by multidisciplinary art-ivist and actor Reggie D. White, directed by stage director and theatre artist Raelle Myrick-Hodges. Baldwin’s observations of racial inequality and civil unrest resonate as deeply now as they did in 1964, the year the essay was written.
This will be a live-streamed staged performance. Erroll McDonald, Chair of the Board of Directors at the Center for Fiction and Executive Editor in the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group of Penguin Random House, who was also one of James Baldwin’s editors, will host this event.
