"National Book Award-winner Jesmyn Ward takes James Baldwin's 1963 examination of race in America, The Fire Next Time, as a jumping off point for this groundbreaking collection of essays and poems about race from the most important voices of her generation and our time. In light of recent tragedies and widespread protests across the nation, The Progressive magazine republished one of its most famous pieces: James Baldwin's 1962 "Letter to My Nephew," which was later published in his landmark book, The Fire Next Time. Addressing his fifteen-year-old namesake on the one hundredth anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, Baldwin wrote: "You know and I know, that the country is celebrating one hundred years of freedom one hundred years too soon." Award-winning author Jesmyn Ward knows that Baldwin's words ring as true as ever today. In response, she has gathered short essays, memoir, and a few essential poems to engage the question of race in the United States. And she has turned to some of her generation's most original thinkers and writers to give voice to their concerns. The Fire This Time is divided into three parts that shine a light on the darkest corners of our history, wrestle with our current predicament, and envision a better future. Of the eighteen pieces, ten were written specifically for this volume. In the fifty-odd years since Baldwin's essay was published, entire generations have dared everything and made significant progress. But the idea that we are living in the post-Civil Rights era, that we are a "post-racial" society is an inaccurate and harmful reflection of a truth the country must confront. Baldwin's "fire next time" is now upon us, and it needs to be talked about. Contributors include Carol Anderson, Jericho Brown, Garnette Cadogan, Edwidge Danticat, Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah, Mitchell S. Jackson, Honoree Jeffers, Kima Jones, Kiese Laymon, Daniel Jose Older, Emily Raboteau, Claudia Rankine, Clint Smith, Natasha Trethewey, Wendy S. Walters, Isabel Wilkerson, and Kevin Young"--… (mais)

Needs to be read by every citizen, regardless of background. Along with the letters of James Baldwin that the title references, and Baldwin's progeny -- Coates, Kenan, etc. -- this book should be a required prerequisite to any discussion of citizenship and what it means to live together as a community. Powerful collection of essays and poems directed toward not only those who bear the heaviest burden of racism's effects but also toward those who, for too long, have supported the status quo through mock outrage and a desire that everyone with a conscience keep silent about the effects of history.

Claudia Rankine sums it up perfectly in her essay "The Condition of Black Life is One of Mourning," writing:

'The Charleston murders alerted us to the reality that a system so steeped in anti-black racism means that on any given day it can be open season on any black person -- old or young, man, woman or child. There exists no equivalent reality for white Americans. We can distance ourselves from this fact until the next horrific killing, but we won't be able to outrun it. History's authority over us is not broken by maintaining a silence about its continued effects" (Rankine 155). ( )

A group of essays jumping off or in conversation with Baldwin’s book of similar title. Not nearly as engaging as Baldwins. A couple of very good essays. The Ward essay was strangely about DNA testing. My favorite was “Black and Blue” by Jamaican author Garnett’s Cadogan.

Edit: I came back to this to reread Black & Blue in the context of flâneurs and ended up rereading several. This is such a great collection to come back to. The essays remain relevant for heartbreaking reasons of recurring events, and also in their thoughtfulness and incisiveness. I'm just remembering when DJ Older was a normal dude on twitter, and even then I felt lucky he was out there fighting for humanity. We're so lucky to have these minds and voices fighting for our humanity. ( )

It is said- "you can't understand a man till you live what he lives"

And I can't. But this collection of finely done essays can give a glimpse, some insight. These essays are as relevant today as Baldwin's "The Fire Next Time" is still, written in 1963.

Pick it up, appreciate the writing and gain from it. ( )

The Tradition: Jericho Brown: Aster. Nasturtium. Delphinium. We thought / Fingers in dirt meant it was our dirt, learning / Names in heat, in elements classical / Philosophers said could change us. Star Gazer. / Foxglove. Summer seemed to bloom against the will / Of the sun, which news reports claimed flamed hotter / On this planet than when our dead fathers / Wiped sweat from their necks. Cosmos. Baby's Breath. / Men like me and my brothers filmed what we / Planted for proof we existed before / Too late, sped the video to see blossoms / Brought in seconds, colors you expect in poems / Where the world ends, everything cut down. / John Crawford. Eric Garner. Mike Brown.
