Originally published in 1955, James Baldwin’s first nonfiction book has become a much-studied classic. These searing essays on life in Harlem, the protest novel, movies, and Americans abroad remain as powerful today as when they were written.

“He named for me the things you feel but couldn’t utter. . . . Jimmy’s essays articulated for the first time to white America what it meant to be American and a black American at the same time.” -Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

“A straight-from-the-shoulder writer, writing about the troubled problems of this troubled earth with an illuminating intensity.” -Langston Hughes, The New York Times Book Review
