Celebrating Black History Month - The Fire Next Time & The Fire This Time: Book Discussion
Start Date: 2/6/2018Start Time: 9:30 AM
End Date: 2/6/2018End Time: 11:00 AM

Event Description:
Written 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. 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."
Jesmyn Ward knows that Baldwin's words ring true as ever today. In response, she has gathered short essays, memoirs, and a few essential poems to engage the question of race in the United States. The Fire This Time shines a light on the darkest corners of our history, wrestles with our current predicament, and envisions a better future.
