James Baldwin was one of the important leaders of the civil rights movement in the USA in the mid-twentieth century; his influence was primarily through the books and essays he wrote. For this week’s Book Club, we will be reading his first novel, “Go Tell It On the Mountain”, from 1953. Join us for a discussion of the book, race relations in the USA, and the role of religion in Baldwin’s life as a source of repression and moral hypocrisy but also inspiration and community.
