Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a work that pivots from questions about American history and ideals to the concerns of a father for his son.
Between the World and Me is a letter to Coates's 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 experiences, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, 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.
