Celebrate the Publication of Baldwin Lee (In-Person)

Join for a conversation between photographer Baldwin Lee and Imani Perry to discuss the work of Baldwin Lee (b. 1951) who left his home in Tennessee in 1983, with his 4 × 5 view camera for a series of road trips to photograph the American South. The subject of his pictures were Black Americans: at home, at work, and at play, in the street, and among nature. This project would consume Lee—a first-generation Chinese American—for the remainder of that decade, and it would forever transform his perception of his country, its people, and himself. Imani Perry is the Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University. She is the author of seven books, most recently the New York Times bestselling South to America: A Journey Below the Mason Dixon to Understand the Soul of a Nation (Ecco, 2022.)

Location: Rizzoli Bookstore, 1133 Broadway, New York NY
