PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Memorable autobiographies are powerful evocations not just of a person, but a time and place, vividly transporting us inside the world of another to experience life as they did.

Documentary filmmaker and writer Sara Lukinson looks at remarkable lives recalled through richly told stories of joys, hopes, and the complexities of the human heart, including James Baldwin, a gifted young black writer in 1950s white America.

The program includes readings from James Baldwin's Notes of a Native Son and archival film clips and stills.

Lukinson, whose films have received three Emmys and seven Writer’s Guild Awards, teaches at NYU and the 92nd Street Y. Her personal essays have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Intima: A Journal of Narrative Medicine.
