"Between the World and Me" by Ta-Nehisi Coates, discussion hosted by Rev Books 7PM, Thurs. 11-19-15 Letter to My Son: “Here is what I would like for you to know: In America, it is traditional to destroy the black body— it is heritage.” The Revolution Books staff will host a discussion of this book, crafted in the form of a letter to the author's 15 year old son. Coates explores deep questions about American slavery, race, mass incarceration, police brutality and murder. He shares “the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory 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." - from the publisher description.
