Let’s Commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Richard Wright’s Death.
November 28, 2010 marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Richard Wright. It would be wonderful if all of us could gather around his gravesite in Paris but that may be impossible for most of us. Let’s each of us mark this occasion then in a personal and spirited way.I am asking that anyone in Paris between now and the end of this month make a trip to the Columbarium at Père Lachaise cemetery (marker #848), pay your respects, leave something, and take a photo of yourself there then send it to me. At month’s end I will make an honorary collage to our great African American expatriate writer.
If you can’t make it to the cemetery, document your passage infront of his former home at 14 rue Monsieur LePrince (6th district) or at his nearby favorite café Le Tournon on rue du Tournon. (If you need directions, let me know).
Nowhere near Paris? – send me your words/drawings/photos to Richard that you’d like added to the collage.
Photos no larger than 1 MG, thanks.
Many Thanks and Best Regards, Julia
