Coverage of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Between the World and Me

Ta-Nehisi Coates's book will be published in September on July 14. I'll use this space to track some of the coverage. Last year, I tracked the coverage of Coates's "The Case for Reparations" as well as the coverage of his in a debate on the so-called "culture of poverty."

[Related:  Between Richard Wright, James Baldwin, and Ta-Nehisi Coates]

I'm looking forward to following the conversation that will emerge in relation to his Between the World and Me.
