Begin Again: James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own

This book is about James Baldwin
In "Begin Again: James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own," Eddie S. Glaude Jr. delves into the profound impact of James Baldwin on America's racial consciousness, juxtaposing Baldwin’s disillusionment with the civil rights era against today's racial struggles. Published on June 30, 2020, this New York Times Bestseller and Stowe Prize winner critically examines America’s perpetual denial of racial truths. Through a blend of biography, history, and memoir, Glaude articulates a poignant narrative that parallels Baldwin’s mid-20th century frustrations with the rise of white nationalism following the Obama presidency and the emergence of Black Lives Matter. This compelling read for adult education groups not only revisits the historical challenges faced by Baldwin but also prompts a reflection on the cyclical nature of Black resistance and white backlash. "Begin Again" stands as a crucial text in the sphere of racial justice, urging a reevaluation of our responsibilities and a renewal of commitment to true equality.
