Written in the form of a letter to his young son, Ta-Nehisi Coates’s National Book Award winner, Between the World and Me, is a powerful personal essay that addresses the history of racism in America and its impact on our lives today.
Using his own experiences and observations as a starting point, Coates poses questions and imparts insights about the systematic oppression of persons of color, covering topics from the dark days of slavery to growing up in Baltimore in a “black body” to all-too-common instances of police brutality and everyday discrimination.
