When is an “isolated incident” an indication of an ongoing pattern?
Never one to shy away from political or social commentary, “The Fire This Time” by Jesmyn Ward digs deep into the legacy of racism in America and what it means to be black in the past, in the present and in the future. For those looking for thought-provoking commentary I highly recommend this book.
There is anger in this book, but there is also love: This is not a comforting read, especially if you’re white. Make no mistake, there is a rage and an anger in the black community today, as well there should be. “The Fire This Time” gives voice to that, and thank God for it.
