COMMUNITY REVIEWS

poetic submitted by EJZ on July 21, 2018, 9:48am A must-read treatise on equity and justice, written with Baldwin's powerful prose. A call to arms and a call for peace at the same time.

Short read submitted by Xris on March 23, 2019, 1:05pm Interesting to see his take on things from years ago, that still applied today, unfortunately. We're not free unless we're all free. :(

A great read submitted by cayluebeck on July 23, 2020, 2:46pm I find myself drawn to novels that are written as letters to future generations. I think it is a great reflection of the time period the author is in and a reflection of the moment the reader is in. We can see how little race conditions have improved since Balwin's writing. His writing is heartbreakingly honest about the difficulties black men must endure in order to survive in a white-ruled society. He is honest without being dark, his writing is powerful and informative. I'd definitely recommend to those wishing to know more about another perspective.

THEE Must Book of a Lifetime submitted by cthathird on June 21, 2022, 2:08am No words I can type here will convey the amount of education and healing that came with indulging in this work. Came at a perfect time for me.
Love him so much.
