The annual James Baldwin Lecture series was launched March 29, 2006 with the inaugural lecture presented by Kwame Anthony Appiah, the Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Philosophy and the University Center for Human Values.

The talk, titled “The Cosmopolitanism of W.E.B. Du Bois,” took place at 4:30 p.m. in 1 Robertson Hall.

Appiah is widely regarded as one of the most insightful and imaginative thinkers in the country. His interests range over African and African-American intellectual history and literary studies, ethics and philosophy of mind and language. His major current work centers on the philosophical foundations of liberalism.

This new series aims to celebrate the work of Princeton faculty and to provide an occasion for the intellectual community to reflect on the issue of race and American democracy. The lectures also honor the work of the late essayist James Baldwin, one of America’s most powerful cultural critics.
