What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live in it? And how can we all honestly reckon this fraugh histrory and free ourselves from this burden? —Ta-Nehisi Coates
Since the early part of the summer a growing number of folks I know have been reading Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. I also admit having lots of conversations in my head as well as a few brief remarks with others even strangers on the subway.
Tonight, The New York Public Library is hosting a live moderated conversation in a space and place that offers a broad view and a wide dialogue.
Questions are as important as answers. As I read on and watch, I'll have more to say in the days ahead. Feel free to share you insights and and comments.
