Event Notes

× Oakland Public Theater is proud to present INVENTORY: James Baldwin Abroad, August 1-4 at Potrero Stage (San Francisco) and August 22-September 1 at BAM House (Oakland), a new theatrical work examining James Baldwin’s personal life and his work. From the churches of Harlem, through expatriation in Europe, into the civil unrest burgeoning out of the South to blossom across America, to his evolving public identity as a gay man, these events are as rich in drama as they are significant to the maturation of this important African-American artist and activist. This project is supported by CA$H Theatre, a grants program of Theatre Bay Area. We are honored to be co-sponsored by the Lower Bottom Playaz and the BAMBD-CDC ( Oakland Public Theater is a member of the PlayGround Innovator Incubator cohort and under their fiscal sponsorship.
