Price Drop Alert

This classic black empowerment book, by controversial writer and social critic James Baldwin, is an unrestrained examination of what it meant to be black during the tumultuous Civil Rights era of the 1960s.

THE FIRE NEXT TIME is a two-essay treatise that confronts the historical realities of being black in America and the effects of Christianity on peoples of color. The first essay is essentially a letter, written to Baldwin’s then 14-year-old nephew on the 100th anniversary of emancipation, in which he confronts race primarily from a historical perspective. In the second essay, Baldwin attacks the religious justifications of racism.

This black history book is a pull-no-punches view of the problems black Americans faced in a time of great upheaval, and it remains relevant still. Read it and see why so many considered it a threat to the status quo when it was first published, and why many intellectuals continue to revere it as one of the great examinations of racial issues ever written.
