Notes of a Native Son by James Baldwin- presented by NBPL Foundation

Go tell it on the mountain book coverJanuary 12
In this collection of essays, the Baldwin captured the complexities of being Black in America during the first rumblings of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s. Throughout his observations, Baldwin both lamented the injustices in the African American community and showed empathy for the oppressor, establishing himself as a key voice in the movement.
