All the grief, grit, and unassailable dignity of the civil rights movement are evoked in this letterpress edition of James Baldwins The Fire Next Time , illustrated with photographs by Steve Schapiro. Together, Baldwins frank account of the black experience and Schapiros vital images offer poetic and potent testimony to one of the most important struggles of American society. First published in 1963, James Baldwins The Fire Next Time stabbed at the heart of Americas so-called Negro problem. As remarkable for its masterful prose as it is for its frank and personal account of the black experience in the United States, it is considered one of the most passionate and influential explorations of 1960s race relations, weaving thematic threads of love, faith, and family into a candid assault on the hypocrisy of the land of the free.Now, James Baldwins rich, raw, and ever relevant prose is reprinted in a letterpress edition with more than 100 photographs from Steve Schapiro, who traveled the American South with Baldwin for Life magazine. The encounter thrust Schapiro into the thick of the movement, allowing for vital, often iconic, images both of civil rights leadersincluding Dr. Rosa Parks, Fred Shuttlesworth, and Jerome Smithand such landmark events as the March on Washington and the Selma March.
Rounding out the edition are Schapiros stories from the field, a new introduction by civil rights legend and U. Congressman John Lewis, captions by Marcia Davis of The Washington Post, and an essay by Gloria Baldwin Karefa-Smart , who was with her brother James in Sierra Leone when he started to work on the story.
The result is a remarkable visual and textual record of one of the most important and enduring struggles of the American experience. Please view the attached photos for greatest detail. Stock images used for interior photos. JAMES BALDWIN The Fire Next Time Steven Shapiro LIMITED ED.
