Summary
A timely and ground-breaking collection of essays and poems about race in America from some of its most unique and powerful voices. In this anthology, Jesmyn Ward brings together the most important voices of a new generation. More than 50 years ago, James Baldwin wrote, in 'The Fire Next Time', that 'the country is celebrating one hundred years of freedom one hundred years too soon'; now, responding to both Baldwin's words and the new tragedies of our day, 18 influential thinkers wrestle with the past, present and future of American race relations and the Black experience
