Between the World and Me

psych 103 Between the World and Me

By Ta-Nehisi Coates

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 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. Beautifully woven from personal  narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage,  Between the World and Me clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward.
