The Fire This Time by Jesmyn Ward expands upon James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time and states that Baldwin’s claim “the country is celebrating one hundred years of freedom one hundred years too soon” still rings true today. Through a series of essays and poems, Ward shows that we are yet to live in a “post-racial” society and large amounts of work must be done if we are to see one.
