BAPL continues its relevant and pertinent programming.
Join in as the City reckons with race.

BAPL is making a very valuable contribution to the national reckoning with race triggered by the murder of George Floyd.

Gadfly taught the early history and literature of America in his other life, but he is still learning much from this major new work of scholarship. Join in and see the construction of, the manufacture of the racist view of African Americans. You won’t be the same.
