James Baldwin : the price of the ticket by Karen Thorsen( Visual )

3 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film presents a look at the life and influence of author James Baldwin (1924-1987), at once a major twentieth century American author, a Civil Rights activist and, for two crucial decades, a prophetic voice calling Americans, Black and white, to confront their shared racial tragedy. Combining archival footage, home movies, television clips, and interviews with friends, family members, and colleagues, as well as readings from his works and scenes from his plays, this documentary captures the passionate intellect and courageous writing of a man who was born Black, impoverished, gifted and gay. Born in Harlem, the eldest of nine children, Baldwin wrote his first play at age eight and went on to write such influential works as Go tell it on the mountain, Giovanni's room, Another country, and The fire next time. This documentary discusses his life in France and Turkey, his homosexuality and his return to the U.S. to participate in the Civil Rights Movement. This comprehensive biography concludes with his death from cancer in 1987 and his funeral at New York's St. John the Divine. Among those who reminisce about the author are Maya Angelou, Amiri Baraka, Ishmael Reed, William Styron, and Baldwin's biographer David Leeming
