This chapter draws heavily on the life and observations of James Baldwin. Detailing Baldwin's analysis of Charlotte, Atlanta, and Harlem, this chapter builds on his insights to emphasize the multiplicity and omnipresence of the South in black American life. This chapter also dispels the idea that the “North” and “South” share such dramatic differences regarding anti-blackness and white supremacy.

Keywords:   James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time, Nobody Knows My Name, multiple Souths, Atlanta, Charlotte, Harlem, black mecca
