James aldwin wrote novels, poetry, essays and a screenplay in the later years of his life. He finished his important novel, Go Tell It on the Mountain in 1953. This work is at least a partially autobiographical account of his youth.

His best-selling essay collection, Nobody Knows My Name won numerous recognitions. In 1968 he published the novel Tell Me How Long the Train's Been Gone, a bitterly incisive account of American racism.
