The title essay from James Baldwin's brilliant first nonfiction collection, Notes of a Native Son, chronicles his father's death, race relations in Jim Crow America, and the 1943 Harlem Riot. The "fixed boundaries" Baldwin writes about in 1955—established by designations of race, gender, religion, and class—still dominate our society.
