The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin contains two essays: "My Dungeon Shook: Letter to my Nephew on the One-Hundredth Anniversary of the Emancipation" and "Down at the Cross: Letter from a Region of My Mind", both that exhort Americans, both black and white, to attack the terrible legacy of racism. A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation, gave a passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement, and still lights the way to understanding race in America today.
