Between the World and Me

#ad
Spiegel & Grau #ad - What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden?Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates’s attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. Americans have built an empire on the idea of “race, and, today, locked up, threatened, ” a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of black women and men—bodies exploited through slavery and segregation, and murdered out of all proportion.

Coates shares with his son—and readers—the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children’s lives were taken as American plunder.
