Baldwin and Friendship | Conversations with Baldwin Salon 


Conversations with Baldwin: The Salon – a series of digital panel discussions exploring the literature and life of 20th-century author and activist James Baldwin. This discussion looks at the people in Baldwin’s life and asks, ‘What role does kinship and relationship have in artistry?’ with Ghanaian-British author and publisher Nii Ayikwei Parkes (flipped eye press), award-winning author Moses McKenzie (An Olive Grove in Ends) and US-Caribbean editor and publicist Lisa Pegram.This event was part of Conversations with Baldwin, a hybrid festival celebrating the life and work of 20th-century author and activist James Baldwin which took place September – October 2023 across London and Bristol. Conversations with Baldwin was produced by Words of Colour and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
