"National Book Award-winner Jesmyn Ward takes James Baldwin's 1963 examination of race in America, The Fire Next Time, as a jumping off point for this groundbreaking collection of essays and poems about race from the most important voices of her generation and our time. In light of recent tragedies and widespread protests across the nation, The Progressive magazine republished one of its most famous pieces: James Baldwin's 1962 "Letter to My Nephew," which was later published in his landmark book, The Fire Next Time. Addressing his fifteen-year-old namesake on the one hundredth anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, Baldwin wrote: "You know and I know, that the country is celebrating one hundred years of freedom one hundred years too soon." Award-winning author Jesmyn Ward knows that Baldwin's words ring as true as ever today. In response, she has gathered short essays, memoir, and a few essential poems to engage the question of race in the United States. And she has turned to some of her generation's most original thinkers and writers to give voice to their concerns. The Fire This Time is divided into three parts that shine a light on the darkest corners of our history, wrestle with our current predicament, and envision a better future. Of the eighteen pieces, ten were written specifically for this volume. In the fifty-odd years since Baldwin's essay 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 "post-racial" society is an inaccurate and harmful reflection of a truth the country must confront. Baldwin's "fire next time" is now upon us, and it needs to be talked about. Contributors include Carol Anderson, Jericho Brown, Garnette Cadogan, Edwidge Danticat, Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah, Mitchell S. Jackson, Honoree Jeffers, Kima Jones, Kiese Laymon, Daniel Jose Older, Emily Raboteau, Claudia Rankine, Clint Smith, Natasha Trethewey, Wendy S. Walters, Isabel Wilkerson, and Kevin Young"--… (lisätietoja)

Most of the essays were incredible; some didn't have as much of an impact on me, though that points more toward personal preference in writing style, and not by content. They are very much of their day--this was published in 2016, what feels like both a lifetime ago and yesterday. And, of course, every bit as relevant today. Some essays I'd already read from previous publication, but they were great to revisit nonetheless. Three essays that stand out particularly were those by Jeffers, Laymon, and Young. ( )

As with all anthologies, there is great variation in quality among these stories, but for the most part the quality is very high, and there are a few pieces here that are incredibly important. These are wise, courageous, activist voices. Thank you for helping me increase my understanding and empathy.

Below I have rated and shared my feelings about all of the stories. I did not rate the three poems.

• Homegoing, AD / by Kima Jones – A touching ode to family and a recognition of the impact of the black diaspora. I think I got distracted by her making out with her cousin. 4-stars

• The Weight / by Rachel Ghansah – This was an extraordinary piece which sent me off to research Ghansah and to read a few of her long form pieces. What a writer, and what a piece. The description of her time at Harper’s was shocking.(maybe only shocking to an old white woman like me?) However, it was her description of her conflicted feelings about James Baldwin, and how her Baldwin tourism in France had made him (in her perception) a beloved man rather than an avatar for black rage, that really resonated. 5-stars, 6 if it were possible

• Lonely in America / by Wendy S. Walters – As someone who gathers information as a coping mechanism, I understand the exercise of humanizing people, slaves in New Hampshire, who had been anonymized, forgotten, and literally paved over. I also appreciated a story about the history of slavery and the devaluation of the black body that was set in the North. Still, the execution did not measure up to that of many of the essays in the collection. 3-stars

• Where Do We Go from Here? / by Isabel Wilkerson – I wanted to like this more. There was nothing wrong with it, but it was soulless. I am a certified Isabel Wilkerson fangirl, so I was disappointed. It brought nothing new to the discussion. Maybe on its own I would not have felt this way, but surrounded as it is by some really spectacular, raw, eye-opening, come-to-Jesus pieces, it disappointed me.. 3-stars.

• "The Dear Pledges of Our Love": A Defense of Phillis Wheatley's Husband / Honoree Fanonne Jeffers – This one rolled off of me. I think I missed something. It felt like a less well-realized version of the stunning Rachel Ghansah essay. 2-stars.

• White Rage / by Carol Anderson – This did not work for me. It felt flat, and repeated things I had heard more effectively expressed in other books and media. 2-stars

• Cracking the Code / by Jesmyn Ward – Ward at the top of her game. (Her introduction to the collection is also very very good). The threat to self that follows the 23 and Me results was something I had never considered. What does it mean to “be.“ 5-stars

• Blacker Than Thou / by Kevin Young – Kevin Young is one of my favorite cultural commentators both in prose and in verse. He never disappoints. 5-stars.

• Da Art of Storytellin' (a prequel) / by Kiese Laymon – Kiese Laymon’s essay made the personal political and vice versa. It made me cry a little. I am not a crier, but Laymon moves me. 5-stars.

• Black and Blue / by Garnette Cadogan – The essay that most surprised me. I was unfamiliar with this writer but that will change. He said nothing I have not read and heard from friends, but somehow he made the pain of walking-while-black more immediate, and vividly showed the costs of institutionalized racism using not a terrible event, but the stuff of everyday living. I am searching out his other work. This was a very worthwhile collection but discovering Cadogan and Rachel Ghansah was the best part. 5-stars. Like Ghansah, a 6 star if there was one.

• The Condition of Black Life is One of Mourning / by Claudia Rankine – This worked for me, it spoke to me. I have two Rankine books sitting on my shelf and have been meaning to read her work for years, but somehow had not gotten there. That will change. This was so clear-eyed and unblinking and showed me something about the importance of visibility and how respect for the dead ends with the killers being less accountable. 5-stars

• Know Your Rights! / by Emily Raboteau – Rambles in a way that obscures its point. I liked, and was moved by, some of the components, but I am not sure how those components created a whole. 3-stars

• Composite Pops / by Mitchell Jackson – I appreciate the intention, maybe I would have gotten more if I had not read Survival Math (I was a fan of that, but Mitchell’s celebration of the pimps who raised him was the most problematic part of that book, and that is a primary focus here.) With the context given in Survival Math I know these men were destroyers of women. I won’t celebrate these men who ruined, sometimes ended, the lives of the women in Jackson’s family, But I did love his tribute to his grandfather. 3-stars

• Far: Notes on Love and Revolution / by Daniel Jose Older – Nice, sweet, perhaps less important than the other pieces in the book – I don’t feel comfortable rating what felt like a lovely scrap of a compelling story.

• Message to My Daughters / by Edwidge Danticat – Captivating, brilliant, a fitting piece to bring this collection together, Blacks as refugees in America, this makes sense as a metaphor, but also as an actuality. Say their names and claim your power. 5-stars. ( )

Each essay had a really strong voice and all fit together very nicely! My favorites were Lonely in America, Cracking the Code, and Blacker Than Thou. ( )

“Replace ropes with bullets. Hound dogs with German shepherds. A gray uniform with a bulletproof vest. Nothing is new.”

This book is dedicated, “ To Trayvon Martin and the many other black men, women, and children who have died and been denied justice for these last four hundred years.”
Bam.

The title of this collection is a slight twist on James Baldwin’s “The Fire Next Time”, which in itself comes from an old slave song, “God gave Noah the rainbow sign, No more water, the fire next time!” The writings within are powerful and maddening. The piece about fathers had me in tears...

This book was published in 2016, the year Trump took office. Before the current racial unrest. Before George and Brianna. Yet, read this, “There was a lynching every four days in the early decades of the twentieth century. It’s been estimated that an African American is now killed by police every two to three days.” I wonder what the rate is now...

This volume is a tough read, but important. Tough because it's true. Important because it's true.
James Baldwin wrote, “Know whence you came. If you know whence you came, there is no limit to where you can go.” I hope someday, that is true for everyone living everywhere. I think that reading a book like this is a good start to fulfill that hope. ( )
  Stahl-Ricco | Nov 16, 2020 |
I am not the intended audience for this book, but I am glad I read it. The essays and poetry in this book crystallize the heartbreak that the black community is feeling in these turbulent times. Designed to share perspectives and the pain felt in this community, it calls to experiences that I, as a white woman, have no context for. I imagine this work would have deeper impact with the indented community of readers, but for me it help put into words/ get a glimpse of the deep pain and sorrow that I cannot hope to understand. A difficult and emotional read, but one I believe is well worth it, regardless of the reader. ( )
