James Baldwin's Letter To His Nephew January 1, 1963 The Fire Next Time
On the centennial anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, James Baldwin wrote this letter to his then 15-year-old nephew it is a letter that every American should read no matter their color or creed. Its contents are still relevant today 57 years after it was first published in Jame Baldwin's powerful book The Fire Next Time.

The very time I thought I was lost, My dungeon shook and my chains fell off. Go to my blog for today's posting In His Words My Voice.
