Baldwin’s Nigger Reloaded II

Join artist Barby Asante and sorryyoufeeluncomfortable for a performance in response to Horace Ove’s film ‘Baldwin’s Nigger’, 1969 – a documentary of James Baldwin and Dick Gregory discussing the Civil Rights Movement in 1960s Great Britain.

In conversation with a number of local people involved in arts and cultural work, social justice and activism Barby and sorryyoufeeluncomfortable will rework the script for ‘Baldwin’s Nigger’, forming the basis for a performance which engages with many issues we are facing at this time in history and how James Baldwin’s writings and thinking resonate with society today.
