Ta-Nehisi Coates's "Between the World and Me" Discussion

  • Nightbird Books 205 W Dickson St Fayetteville, AR, 72701 United States (map)

Between Baldwin and Coates: Masculinity and Black Belles Lettres in the Radical Tradition.

Nightbird Books is pleased to join Dr. Lisa Corrigan, Associate Professor of Communication and Director of the Gender Studies Program at the University of Arkansas, in a discussion Ta-Nehesi Coates's new book Between the World and Me.

Coates, a senior editor at The Atlantic, has been a prominent voice about race, politics, and popular culture and has been particularly praised for "Fear of a Black President" and "The Case for Reparations."

Toni Morrison's controversial blurb for his newest book reads: "I've been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates."

Dr. Corrigan will be discussing Coates's book, the controversy surrounding it, and contemporary racial politics in the U.S., including the Black Lives Matter movement.

This discussion is free and open to the public. Copies of Coates's book will be available for purchase.
