An autobiographical book of his early years as preacher. Dated, yet his message still holds true, although the players and events may have changed.

In passion, poetry, hate, and love, but especially love, in the highest sense, Mr. Baldwin explains what it means to be a Negro in America. If ever there was a compassionate and eloquent sermon for our time, demanding the most agonizing self-examination from anyone who reads, this is it...great...extraordinary.
So eloquent in its passion and so scorching in its candor that it is bound to unsettle any a novelist and writer of uncommon talent, he plunges to the human heart of the matter.
