A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation and gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement. At once a powerful evocation of James Baldwin's early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice, the book is an intensely personal and provocative document. It consists of two "letters," written on the occasion of the centennial of the Emancipation Proclamation, that exhort Americans, both black and white, to attack the terrible legacy of racism. Described by The New York Times Book Review as "sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle...all presented in searing, brilliant prose," The Fire Next Time stands as a classic of our literature.

Essay aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Amerika, Note: 2,0, Universitat zu Koln (Historisches Institut/Angloamerikanische Abteilung), Veranstaltung: Postwar Hopes, Postwar Fears: Die USA 1945-1963, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Diese Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit der Streitschrift von James Baldwin: "The Fire Next Time," durch die er in der civil rights-Bewegung der 60er Jahre zu einem der bedeutendsten Schriftsteller wurde. Es wird aufgezeigt, wie James Baldwin das Christentum, den Ursprung des Rassismus sah und den Zusammenhang zwischen beiden herstellte., Abstract: James Baldwin war Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts der fuhrende afroamerikanische Schriftsteller. Sein Essay "The fire next time" wurde zur einer der bedeutendsten Schriften in der Zeit des civil rights movement. Als Sohn eines Predigers in Harlem in New York aufgewachsen beschaftigte sich Baldwin viel mit der christlichen Religion, bevor er ihr schliesslich den Rucken kehrte und zum Islam wechselte. Sein Leben war von der christlichen Religion und seiner Hautfarbe bestimmt. Als Kind litt er unter den Verboten seines Vaters. Viele Dinge wurden ihm in seiner Kindheit und Jugend untersagt, weshalb er die christliche Religion negativ kennen lernte, woraus man schliessen kann, dass dies einer der Grunde fur seinen spateren Wechsel zum Islam war. Er machte ebenfalls die Erfahrung, dass er wegen seiner Hautfarbe in den USA diskriminiert wurde. Er begann, sich mit diesen beiden Dingen zu beschaftigen und fugte sie dann in seiner Streitschrift "The fire next time" zusammen. In dieser Streitschrift machte Baldwin den Versuch, die Rassenfrage umzudrehen. Er kampfte fur die Rechte der Schwarzen, indem er die Schwarzen dazu aufrief, die Weissen ohne Hass anzuerkennen, um so zu einer gerechteren Gesellschaft in Amerika zu gelangen, um den Weissen keinen "Grund" zu geben, Afroamerikaner zu unterdrucken und ihnen Rechte vorzuenthalten. Er lehnte es ab, die Schwarzen auf eine hohere Stufe zu stellen, als die Weiss"

»Captains Courageous« is the adventure story of Harvey Cheyne, spoilt son of an American billionaire. On a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, the young man goes overboard and is saved by fishermen from Newfoundland. The men don’t believe the story of Harvey’s wealth and treat him like one of their own. Harvey has to work hard and live the life of an ordinary fisher. At first, he is unable to cope with the new challenges, but finally he becomes stronger and learns to judge life from a different perspective. Rudyard Kipling was born in 1865 in Bombay as son of an Anglo-American family. At the age of five, he was taken to England where he was educated. He returned to India as a young man and started working as a journalist and novelist. His most popular fictional works were »The Jungle Book« (1894) and »Kim« (1901). In 1907 Kipling was the youngest and first English author to receive the Nobel Price for literature. He died in London in 1936.

Why did Black-Korean tensions result in violent clashes in Los Angeles but not in New York City? In a book based on fieldwork and on a nationwide database he constructed to track such conflicts, Patrick D. Joyce goes beyond sociological and cultural explanations. No Fire Next Time shows how political practices and urban institutions can channel racial and ethnic tensions into protest or, alternately, leave them free to erupt violently. Few encounters demonstrate this connection better than those between African Americans and Korean Americans.Cities like New York, where politics is noisy, contentious, and involves people at the grassroots, have seen extensive Black boycotts of Korean-owned businesses (usually small grocery stores). African Americans in Los Angeles have sustained few long-term boycotts of Korean American businesses—but the absence of "routine" contention there goes hand in hand with the large-scale riots of 1992 and continuous acts of individual violence.In demonstrating how conflicts between these groups were intimately tied to their political surroundings, this book yields practical lessons for the future. City governments can do little to fight widening economic inequality in an increasingly diverse nation, Joyce writes. But officials and activists can restructure political institutions to provide the foundations for new multiracial coalitions.

James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time was one of the essential books of the sixties and one of the most galvanizing statements of the American civil rights movement. Now, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, with a new generation confronting what Baldwin called a "racial nightmare", acclaimed writer Randall Kenan asks: How far have we come? Starting with W. E. B. Du Bois and Martin Luther King, Jr., Kenan expands the discussion to include many of today's most powerful personalities, such as Oprah Winfrey, O. J. Simpson, Rodney King, George Foreman and Barack Obama. Combining elements of memoir and commentary, this homage is a piercing consideration of the times, and an impassioned call to transcend them. 'Kenan demands attention.' — Observer 'A talented young novelist and short-story writer... What makes Kenan...so unusual is his willingness to look beyond the usual places.' —The New York Times 'Kenan continues Baldwin's legendary tradition of telling it on the mountain.' — San Francisco Chronicle 'A perfect catalyst for lively discussion, and a fine state-of-the-issues update on Baldwin's 45-year-old touchstone.' — Publishers Weekly

During the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Black Power movement provided the dominant ideological framework through which many young, poor, and middle-class blacks made sense of their lives and articulated a political vision for their futures. The legacy of the movement is still very much with us today in the various strands of black nationalism that originated from it; we witnessed its power in the 1995 Million Man March, and we see its more ambiguous effects in the persistent antagonisms among former participants in the civil rights coalition. Yet despite the importance of the Black Power movement, very few in-depth, balanced treatments of it exist. Is It Nation Time? gathers new and classic essays on the Black Power movement and its legacy by renowned thinkers who deal rigorously and unsentimentally with such issues as the commodification of blackness, the piety of cultural recovery, and class tensions within the movement. For anyone who wants to understand the roots of the complex political and cultural desires of contemporary black America, this will be an essential collection. Contributors: Eddie S.

John Edgar Wideman is one of the most prominent African American writers today. He is the first author to have been awarded the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction twice-once in 1984 for Sent for You Yesterday and again in 1990 for Philadelphia Fire. His memoir, Fatheralong, was a finalist for the National Book Award. Yet, despite all of Wideman's accolades and renown, there are only three full-length studies on his work to date. TuSmith's and Byerman's Critical Essays on John Edgar Wideman takes a bold step in expanding Wideman scholarship. This volume is an indispensable study of Wideman's oeuvre, covering the full range of his career by addressing the key features of his fiction and nonfiction from 1967 to the present. The essays in this book reflect the most advanced thinking on Wideman's prolific, extraordinary art. The collection features at least one article on each major work and includes the voices of both well-established and emerging scholars. Though their critical perspectives are diverse, the contributors place Wideman squarely at the center of contemporary African American literature as an exemplar of postmodern approaches to literary art. Several position Wideman within the context of his predecessors-Wright, Baldwin, Ellison-and within a larger cultural context of music and collective history. The essays examine Wideman's complex style and his blending of African and Western cosmologies and aesthetics, the use of personal narrative, and his imaginative revisioning of forgotten historical events. These insightful analyses cover virtually every stage of Wideman's career and every genre in which he has written. A detailed bibliography of Wideman's work is also included. Informed yet accessible, this collection will be a rich source of information and intellectual stimulus for teachers, students, and scholars in American and African American literature, as well as general readers interested in Wideman's multilayered and challenging texts.
