Summary In the fifty-odd years since James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time 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 "postracial" society - is a callous corruption of a truth that our nation must confront. This groundbreaking anthology on race in America brings together the most important voices of a new generation: shining light on the darkest corners of our history, wrestling with our predicament, and attempting to envision a better future.
