James Baldwin was ten years old when he first fell victim to white police violence. He deals with experiences like this in »The Fire Next Time« from 1963. This volume of essays quickly became a key text for the contemporary discourse on racism and established Baldwin as a world-class essayist. »Basically the finest essay I’ve ever read« [Ta-Nehisi Coates]. Conversation and reading with Baldwin’s German translator Miriam Mandelkow and the writer Deniz Utlu.
