What I’m reading: Between The World and Me by Ta-nehisi Coates.
“This is your country, this is your world, this is your body, and you must find some way to live within the all of it.”
This is a profound work by an amazing author passionately attempting to explain the difficulties of race and American racism to his young Black son. This work offers a powerful framework for new and present understanding of our nation’s shameful and complicated history with race and the current conversation around the cultural crisis.
I will boldly say that this is required reading as quoted by the great Toni Morrison. The author is giving a new age Richard Wright, James McBride type literally excellence.
Very impressed and enlightened.
