In the 150 years since the end of the Civil War and the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment, the history of race and America has remained abruptly simple, written on the flesh – this is the history of the black body, exploited to create the founding country of wealth, violently separated to unify the nation after the civil war, and today still disproportionately threatened, imprisoned and imprisoned.What about living in a black body and finding a way to live in it?And how can America count on its heavy racial historyBetween the World and Me, it is Ta-Nehisi Coates’ trying to answer these questions, presented in the form of a letter to his teenage son.Coates shares with his son – and the readers – the story of his own awakening to the truth about history and running through a series of revealing experiences of immersion in nationalist mythology, like a child; engagement with history, poetry and love at Howard University; trips to Civil War and the battlefield, South Side Chicago; a trip to France that reunites him with his son – and the readers.Taken together, these stories from the map of a winding path to a kind of liberation – a journey of fear and confusion, to a complete and honest understanding of the world as it is.Magisterially, woven from lyrical personal history, reinvented history, and fresh, full of emotion, full of stories, Between the World and M’ Offers me a powerful new framework for understanding the history of America and the current crisis, and a transcendent vision to move forward.
