The Fire Next Time
- Written by: James Baldwin
- Narrated by: Jesse L. Martin
- Length: 2 hrs and 25 mins
At once a powerful evocation of his early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice to both the individual and the body politic, James Baldwin galvanized the nation in the early days of the civil rights movement with this eloquent manifesto. The Fire Next Time stands as one of the essential works of our literature.
I had to listen to it a few times
