[The Beautiful Struggle]
At one point in chapter 3 of The Beautiful Struggle, Coates states, “slowly I came to understand why these boys needed to wear capes, masks, and muscle suits between bars. Slowly I came to feel that I was not the only one who was afraid” (102). What’s one thing in particular that he mentions that you think assisted him in understanding why black boys needed to wear masks? Please provide a page number.
