BONJOUR: Day Party + Fundraiser Celebrating Art and Resistance Sept. 22, 1-5pm

In 1948, James Baldwin moved to France in search of the space to develop as a cultural thinker and writer that evaded him in this country. The contributions he made fighting for civil rights, justice and Black cultural radicalism-in addition to those of Maya Angelou, Malcolm X, Nina Simone, Stuart Hall and many others–inspired us to launch a year-long inquiry and cultural think tank entitled The Fire Next Time: A Call and Response (#TFNTOakland). Join us on September 22 from 1-5pm for BONJOUR: A Day Party + Fundraiser to raise critical funds for the project and celebrate this rich legacy of art and resistance!
