James Baldwin - The Fire Next Time

James Baldwin - The Fire Next Time

PENGUIN MODERN CLASSICS

  • £8.99


The landmark work on race in America from James Baldwin, whose life and words are immortalised in the Oscar-nominated film I Am Not Your Negro.

'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.
