James Baldwin - The Fire Next Time
"We, the black and the white, deeply need each other here if we are really to become a nation"
James Baldwin's impassioned plea to "end the racial nightmare" in America was a bestseller when it appeared in 1963, galvanising a nation and giving voice to the emerging civil rights movement.
Told in the form of two intensely personal 'letters', The Fire Next Time is at once a powerful evocation of Baldwin's early life in Harlem and an excoriating condemnation of the terrible legacy of racial injustice.
