Philly celebration of author James Baldwin’s enduring legacy includes remarks from Abu-Jamal
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the death of James Baldwin, a prolific writer whose work chronicles the struggle and history of African-Americans in this country. A three-day festival celebrating Baldwin’s work and life is now under-way at the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia.
Event organizer Meghna Chandra joined NewsWorks Tonight’s Mary Cummings-Jordan to discuss Baldwin and speakers featured at the event, including the imprisoned Mumia Abu-Jamal.
