The Fire Next Time

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: James Baldwin

Narrated By: Jesse L. Martin

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: February 2008

Duration: 2 hours 25 minutes


At once a powerful evocation of his early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice to both the individual and the body politic, James Baldwin galvanized the nation in the early days of the civil rights movement with his eloquent manifesto. The Fire Next Time stands as one of the essential works of our literature.

“The Fire Next Time is ultimately a hopeful and healing essay. Baldwin ranges far in these hundred pages…What binds it all together is the eloquence, intimacy, and controlled urgency of the voice. Baldwin clearly paid in sweat and shame for every word in this text. What’s incredible is that he managed to keep his cool.”, editorial review
