Join actor Larry Powell as he portrays writer and public intellectual James Baldwin in this production of "Made in L.A. 2020" artist Harmony Holiday's one-man play, God's Suicide, which looks at Black male vulnerability as its central subject. Adapted from an essay by the artist and constructed around the rarely acknowledged five suicide attempts of Baldwin, this deeply personal work examines the interplay between creative and destructive forces in societies infected with white supremacy. 

The program is presented by the Hammer Museum.
