Publisher's Summary

This stunningly personal document and extraordinary history of the turbulent '60s and early '70s displays James Baldwin's fury and despair more deeply than any of his other works.

In vivid detail he remembers the Harlem childhood that shaped his early consciousness, the later events that scored his heart with pain - the murders of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, his sojourns in Europe and in Hollywood, and his return to the American South to confront a violent America face-to-face.

a moving ,Soul crushing ,inspiring work of art

after watching "I am not your negro" I felt compelled to read this man's works. This is the first one that I've listened to I hope to purchase the actual paper books that he wrote in the coming days and weeks.
