TRUTHSAYERS: ROBERT JONES JR. – CREATOR OF SON OF BALDWIN

Robert Jones, Jr. is the creator and curator of Son of Baldwin, an online community which aims to be an honest, inclusive, and self-reflecting space to critically discuss topics such as race, sexuality, gender, and disability from the Black queer perspective. While reading James Baldwin’s “Here Be Dragons” as a freshman at Brooklyn College, Jones was inspired to continue Baldwin’s work of dismantling the human-made structures that oppress marginalized groups. He created Son of Baldwin in 2008 as a place to understand and combat injustices and inequalities through meaningful conversations on oppression and privilege. Son of Baldwin currently has over 250,000 followers across all of its various platforms.
