James Baldwin was a novelist, poet, playwright, and one of the greatest essayists in American Literature. The Fire Next Time (1963) presents two of his essays and is considered by some as one of the most influential books on race relations in America in the 1960s.

A former lecturer in the English Department, he received his Ph.D. from Columbia University with a concentration in 19th-century and early 20th-century English literature.
