A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation and gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement. At once a powerful evocation of James Baldwin's early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice, the book is an intensely personal and provocative document. It consists of two "letters," written on the occasion of the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, that exhort Americans, both black and white, to attack the terrible legacy of racism. Described by The New York Times Book Review as "sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle...all presented in searing, brilliant prose," The Fire Next Time stands as a classic of our literature.

The landmark work on race in America from James Baldwin, whose life and words are immortalized 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. 'Sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle ... all presented in searing, brilliant prose' The New York Times Book Review 'Baldwin writes with great passion ... it reeks of truth, as the ghettoes of New York and London, Chicago and Manchester reek of our hypocrisy' Sunday Times 'The great poet-prophet of the civil rights movement ... his seminal work' Guardian

Why did Black-Korean tensions result in violent clashes in Los Angeles but not in New York City? In a book based on fieldwork and on a nationwide database he constructed to track such conflicts, Patrick D. Joyce goes beyond sociological and cultural explanations. No Fire Next Time shows how political practices and urban institutions can channel racial and ethnic tensions into protest or, alternately, leave them free to erupt violently. Few encounters demonstrate this connection better than those between African Americans and Korean Americans.Cities like New York, where politics is noisy, contentious, and involves people at the grassroots, have seen extensive Black boycotts of Korean-owned businesses (usually small grocery stores). African Americans in Los Angeles have sustained few long-term boycotts of Korean American businesses—but the absence of "routine" contention there goes hand in hand with the large-scale riots of 1992 and continuous acts of individual violence.In demonstrating how conflicts between these groups were intimately tied to their political surroundings, this book yields practical lessons for the future. City governments can do little to fight widening economic inequality in an increasingly diverse nation, Joyce writes. But officials and activists can restructure political institutions to provide the foundations for new multiracial coalitions.

Essay aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Amerika, Note: 2,0, Universitat zu Koln (Historisches Institut/Angloamerikanische Abteilung), Veranstaltung: Postwar Hopes, Postwar Fears: Die USA 1945-1963, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Diese Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit der Streitschrift von James Baldwin: "The Fire Next Time," durch die er in der civil rights-Bewegung der 60er Jahre zu einem der bedeutendsten Schriftsteller wurde. Es wird aufgezeigt, wie James Baldwin das Christentum, den Ursprung des Rassismus sah und den Zusammenhang zwischen beiden herstellte., Abstract: James Baldwin war Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts der fuhrende afroamerikanische Schriftsteller. Sein Essay "The fire next time" wurde zur einer der bedeutendsten Schriften in der Zeit des civil rights movement. Als Sohn eines Predigers in Harlem in New York aufgewachsen beschaftigte sich Baldwin viel mit der christlichen Religion, bevor er ihr schliesslich den Rucken kehrte und zum Islam wechselte. Sein Leben war von der christlichen Religion und seiner Hautfarbe bestimmt. Als Kind litt er unter den Verboten seines Vaters. Viele Dinge wurden ihm in seiner Kindheit und Jugend untersagt, weshalb er die christliche Religion negativ kennen lernte, woraus man schliessen kann, dass dies einer der Grunde fur seinen spateren Wechsel zum Islam war. Er machte ebenfalls die Erfahrung, dass er wegen seiner Hautfarbe in den USA diskriminiert wurde. Er begann, sich mit diesen beiden Dingen zu beschaftigen und fugte sie dann in seiner Streitschrift "The fire next time" zusammen. In dieser Streitschrift machte Baldwin den Versuch, die Rassenfrage umzudrehen. Er kampfte fur die Rechte der Schwarzen, indem er die Schwarzen dazu aufrief, die Weissen ohne Hass anzuerkennen, um so zu einer gerechteren Gesellschaft in Amerika zu gelangen, um den Weissen keinen "Grund" zu geben, Afroamerikaner zu unterdrucken und ihnen Rechte vorzuenthalten. Er lehnte es ab, die Schwarzen auf eine hohere Stufe zu stellen, als die Weiss"

Hailed by Toni Morrison as “required reading,” a bold and personal literary exploration of America’s racial history by “the single best writer on the subject of race in the United States” (The New York Observer) #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER | NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER | PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST | NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST | NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • O: The Oprah Magazine • The Washington Post • People • Entertainment Weekly • Vogue • Los Angeles Times • San Francisco Chronicle • Chicago Tribune • New York • Newsday • Library Journal • Publishers Weekly In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation’s history and current crisis. Americans have built an empire on the idea of “race,” a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of black women and men—bodies exploited through slavery and segregation, and, today, threatened, locked up, and murdered out of all proportion. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden? Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates’s attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. Coates shares with his son—and readers—the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children’s lives were taken as American plunder. Beautifully woven from personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage, Between the World and Me clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward. Praise for Between the World and Me “Powerful . . . a searing meditation on what it means to be black in America today.”—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times “Eloquent . . . in the tradition of James Baldwin with echoes of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man . . . an autobiography of the black body in America.”—The Boston Globe “Brilliant . . . [Coates] is firing on all cylinders.”—The Washington Post “Urgent, lyrical, and devastating . . . a new classic of our time.”—Vogue “A crucial book during this moment of generational awakening.”—The New Yorker “Titanic and timely . . . essential reading.”—Entertainment Weekly

This stunningly personal document and extraordinary history of the turbulent sixties and early seventies displays James Baldwin's fury and despair more deeply than any of his other works. In vivid detail he remembers the Harlem childhood that shaped his early conciousness, the later events that scored his heart with pain--the murders of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, his sojourns in Europe and in Hollywood, and his retum to the American South to confront a violent America face-to-face.
