TA NEHISI COATES, BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME . A letter to an adolescent son. Not unlike The Soul of Black Folks by W.E.B. Dubois. ( search gordonsgoodreads). An extraordinarily powerful book. Toni Morrison is correct, “This is required Reading.” Think of writing this to your own son or daughter: At the onset of the Civil War, our stolen bodies were worth four billion dollars, more than all of America industry, all of American Railroads, workshops and factories combined.
BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME could not be more relevant than in today’s discourse. The messaging is profound, deep, touching and real. The type of book that those who need to read it most likely will not. Please choose yes and be enlightened.
