Between the World and Me


Ta-Nehisi Coates’ “Between the World and Me” offers a powerful new framework for understanding America’s history and current crisis by exploring what it means to inhabit a black body in a nation built on the falsehood of “race”. Written as a letter to his son, Coates shares his personal awakening to this truth through experiences from his life, weaving together personal narrative, reimagined history, and emotionally charged reportage to offer a clear and transcendent vision for moving forward.
