Mr. Reese Goes To Paris 2016
"You don't tell life, life tells you . " - James Baldwin
Charles Reese & The James Baldwin Project Goes To The American University of Paris!
My name is Charles Reese. I am a actor, author, educator and cultural architect for public engagement who has spent the last 15 years bearing witness to the fiery spirit of the writer, activist and expatriate James Baldwin ( 1924 -1987).
I have been selected to present at THE INTERNATIONAL JAMES BALDWIN CONFERENCE IN PARIS , FRANCE from May 26 -28, 2016.
All proceeds from this campaign will be used to support this journey to France which includes: round trip airfare, hotel, food, inter-continental travel, conference fees and most importantly an "archival documentation " of this once in a lifetime golden opportunity.
Additionally, I will be extending my journey to travel to Baldwin's former home in southern France, participate in the first ever Paris Fringe Fest2016 and utilize this international platform to ignite a proactive dialogue to produce a feature film project on one of our greatest writers in the 20th Century.
To show my THANKS and APPRECIATION , I will email you an E-Book Gift ( from The James Baldwin Literary & Coversations Salon Series curated by Reese) to ALL donations of $25 or more.
And the journey begins NOW.... on your Mark, Set, Ready, Go Well. Share. Share. Share.
And it is so. And so it is. Gratitude!
