Ta-Nehisi Coates shares James Baldwin’s capacity to look into the maw of history and recognize the human, and that makes Between the World and Me worthy of Baldwin’s legacy.

Whether you agree or disagree, one of the great joys of reading Ta-Nehisi Coates is being challenged in ways you didn’t expect or imagine.

This is by no means a textbook on American blackness; no such literature exists, and Coates spends almost a quarter of the book describing his own folly in seeking it. What Coates has produced instead is a brilliant primer on the experience of black maleness in America and the man-made structures that shape it.
