ABOUT BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME
This book has garnered many awards, including #1 New York Times Best Seller and winner of the National Book Award. It is the second book in our series on race relations in America; a journey of listening to our black brothers and sisters, exploring our own biases, and our work as Christians to help heal the racial divide in America.
Summary: In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation’s history and current crisis. 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. 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 streets of Baltimore to Howard University, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children’s lives were taken as American plunder.
