How would James Baldwin confront the ongoing environmental crisis that has disproportionately impacted the health and resiliency of Black lives; and what would be his expectations of writers, artists, politicians and all “relatively conscious” individuals during this critical period of time?
In working with the James Baldwin Outdoor Learning Center, the 2019 Mosaic Literary Conference explores how our literary community can interact and collaborate with garden communities to explore ways that urban dwellers can reclaim green consciousness, advocate for food sovereignty, and defend the environment that we rely upon for our health and survival.
The Mosaic Literary Conference provides a platform for literature-based creative thinking and knowledge sharing. Each year we invite educators, community and arts organizations, and the public to participate in a variety of panels and workshops. This is a free event.
