Kaepernick's Reading List Book Club - The Fire Next Time

Kaepernick's Reading List Book Club - The Fire Next Time

Welcome to Kaepernick's Reading List, a book group for curious people interested in justice and equality (a love for football is optional). Join us the last Sunday of every month in reading some of the books that inspired Colin Kaepernick to activism. We'll continue our search for insight and equity by reading and discussing The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin on Sunday, November 26th at 7pm.

A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation and gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement. At once a powerful evocation of James Baldwin's early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice, the book is an intensely personal and provocative document.

Everybody knew that books were dangerous. Read the wrong book, it was said, and the words crawled around your brain on black legs and drove you mad, wicked mad. Mosca Mye was born at a time sacred to Goodman Palpitattle, He Who Keeps Flies out of Jams and Butterchurns, which is why her father insisted on naming her after the housefly.
