JAMES BALDWIN A SOUL ON FIRE a short play by HOWARD B. SIMON....Edited by Charles Reese, Introduction By David Leeming, Afterword by Forrest McClendon!

The year 2012 marks the beginning of a year long celebration of the 25th anniversary of the passing of author/civil rights activist, James Baldwin (1924-1987). In honor of this milestone and to pay homage to the legacy of Mr. Baldwin—, James Baldwin: A Soul on Fire, the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway play by Howard. B. Simon (1962-2000) in association with The Charles Reese Experience and Azaan Kamau/Glover Lane Press will publish and distribute the official play version in preparation for a book signing/reading series to start in February 2012 and continue throughout the year.
JAMES BALDWIN: A SOUL ON FIRE is a two character short play which re-imagines what happens when writer/activist James Baldwin invites Lorraine Hansberry, Harry Belafonte and Lena Horne to a round table discussion on race relations with Attorney General Robert Kennedy on May 24, 1963? This theatrical play witnesses a day in the life of James Baldwin as he prepares for this lesser known historical secret meeting in New York City—three months prior to the March on Washington. This uniquely structured play explores the hidden
recesses of Baldwin’s innermost passions.

The introduction for this rare book was written by David Leeming, James Baldwin's actual biographer!

The book cover was custom designed by Azaan Kamau of Glover Lane Press. The book cover image actually consists of 2000 tiny separate images from the 1963 Civil Rights Era. The result is a beautiful photo mosaic of James Baldwin!
