Since 1986, the National James Baldwin Literary Society (JAMBALITSO) has been an association of scholars, teachers, creative and performing artists, undergraduates, graduate students and lay persons who have a serious interest in the life and writings of James Baldwin. Specifically, these individuals share a genuine concern for meaningful research pertaining to Baldwin and his works and are committed to increasing the awareness and perpetuating the appreciation of James Baldwin as a major American writer of the twentieth century. For over two decades, the National James Baldwin Literary Society has sponsored and/or hosted over 100 free public programs and partnered with local institutions such as the Enoch Pratt Free Library as well as both Towson and Morgan State Universities.
MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER
Dear Fellow Baldwin-ites,
It has been over 25 years since I began this journey, this tribute, this mission. The Society will offer its yearlong celebration of Baldwin's 90th birth anniversary with exciting new (and free!) public events. Please consider becoming a member and attending our network of James Baldwin related events throughout the year. If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me directly.
Best of Baldwin to you,
Kevin Brown, founder and president
