James Baldwin Circle Induction

The James Baldwin Circle is NAAM’s opportunity to be in conversation with and honor an African American writer who uses the power of the pen to make America more equitable and writes in truth-telling ways akin to James Baldwin. The writer is inducted as a Fellow into NAAM’s James Baldwin Circle, presented with a plaque, and discusses their latest writings.

NAAM is pleased to induct Seattle resident, writer, speaker and New York Times bestselling author, Ijeoma Oluo. She is the author of bestseller So You Want to Talk About Race and most recently, Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America. Her writings will be discussed during the ceremony.

This event will take place virtually on NAAM’s Youtube channel.
