The Fire Next Time
by James Baldwin, 1963
"God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
No more water, the fire next time!"
This non-fiction novel contains two essays, both addressing racial tensions in America. These essays received critical acclaim upon release and are considered some of the most powerful pieces about race relations.
"The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation, gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement—and still lights the way to understanding race in America today. "
