Greetings,
Join your community for a virtual viewing of Syracuse Stage’s performance of Citizen James, Or The Young Man Without A Country, a one-man performance on the life of James Baldwin. The performance recording will be available to view from April 30th - May 6th. See a preview at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6086sBcgCQ4.

"Meet a 24-year-old James Baldwin at LaGuardia Airport. Young James is an unknown aspiring “Negro” writer whose first novel has yet to be published. He awaits his flight, having just left his family with the news of his decision to flee America for refuge in Paris. He speaks no French. He has a one-way ticket and $40 in his pocket.

Witness James Baldwin as he decides he must do something to save himself from the violent reality of racist America in 1948, a decision that sets him on the path to becoming a brilliant, powerful, and prophetic voice of the Civil Rights era and beyond. More than a one-man show, Citizen James is a bridge that connects the past to our now."

This event is sponsored by the Southern Cayuga Anne Frank Tree Project. Email scfranktree@... to register and receive a link for viewing.
