Coverage of Ta-Nehisi Coates's "The Case for Reparations"

I've been tracking the responses and follow-ups to Ta-Nehisi Coates's recent article "The Case for Reparations," released on May 21 in The Atlantic. The magazine ran a video trailer for the essay last week. A year ago, I heard Coates mention that he was working on the piece; I've been interested watching the roll-out and commentary.
