Review: Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Between the World and Me - Ta-Nehisi Coates

The short collection of essays from the author to his 15 year old son is both profoundly personal and universal. Coates even comments on that universality early in the book when he mentioned that the woman and girls in his childhood neighborhood probably had more fears (such as making it to adulthood without their bodies being violated) than he did. There will be some paraphrasing of Coates ideas in the book when I speak to my daughter about navigating this world.
