"The story of the negro in America is the story of America... it is not a very pretty story"

James Baldwin's breakthrough 1955 essay collection, made him the voice of his generation. Ranging from Harlem in the 1940s, movies, novels, his preacher father and his experiences of Paris, they capture the complexity of black life at the dawn of the civil rights movement with effervescent wit and prophetic wisdom.
