Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi coates’ attempt to explain why he believes white people are racist to his adolescent son. Coates shares with listeners the story of his awakening about his place in the universe through a series of revela­tory experiences, from Howard University, to Civil War battlefields in the south, from the South Side in Chicago to Paris, from the home he grew up in to the living rooms of women whose children’s life were taken as American plundering.

“In a profound work that turns from the biggest questions about America’s history and ideals to the intimate concerns of a father and son, Ta-Nehesi Coates offers a compelling new framework for understanding our country’s past and present.”
