Between the World and Me
Motivations to Read
As a young black male, a lot of the experiences the would be documented in this book very well apply to me. I've made personal decisions to avoid the news but word of the injustices done to unarmed black males still gets through to me. I expect to be uncomfortable reading this. I expect to gain new awareness. I want to be open to what Coates has to say.
3 Reasons to Read
- A powerful letter to a son by Ta-Nehisi Coates, on understanding the nation's history and it's current racial crisis
- Coates view on the question, What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it?
- A poetic plea for justice
