About

One of Baldwin's most provocative and wrenching stories, "Sonny's Blues," is about estranged brothers forced together again by tragedy and circumstance. One is perceived as respectable, the disreputable. Slowly, the respectable brother must rethink society's definition of success, respect, and what it means to be a man.

Facilitated by members of The Knoxville Chapter of The Links.

This event is part of a series of lectures, movie screenings, performances, and Socratic seminars, in which Knox County Public Library will join The Delaney Project to shed light on the 38-year friendship between Delaney and James Baldwin
