JAMES BALDWIN: THE PRICE OF THE TICKET.
An Interactive Online Screening with Live Chat
Between Viewers and the Filmmakers!
- During the week of August 23 - 30, American Masters presented a special Encore National Broadcast of the award-winning feature-length documentary JAMES BALDWIN: THE PRICE OF THE TICKET. Directed by Karen Thorsen, the film is an emotional portrait, a social critique, and a passionate plea for human equality. Without using narration, the film allows Baldwin to tell his own story: exploring what it means to be born black, impoverished, gay and gifted – in a world that has yet to understand that “all men are brothers.”
- Originally aired by PBS / American Masters in August, 1989, this ‘March on Washington’ broadcast also coincides with the 25th anniversary of James Baldwin’s death (December, 1987), the 50th anniversary of the publication of James Baldwin’s bestselling essay The Fire Next Time (1963), and the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation (1863).
