NYU’s African Heritage Month (in honor of the 5th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Week) will commemorate the legacy of James Baldwin through a special film screening of the documentary  James Baldwin: The Price of the Ticket.

Baldwin, who was a 20th century American author and Civil Rights activist, was know for calling Black and white Americans to confront their shared racial tragedy. “The Price of the Ticket” captures the passionate intellect and courageous writing of a man who was born black, impoverished, gay and gifted. From Baldwin’s formative years in the Harlem of the 30s to his quiet retreats in France, Istanbul and Switzerland, the film explores his poignant views on the racial tensions in the United States. Sponsored by the NYU Office of LGBT Student Services and NYU African Heritage Month.”

    Young children and pregnant or nursing mothers need to avoid
    tooth whitening. Listening to other individuals who perform
    in the similar office will decrease stress and develop
    a additional perfect environment.
