This landmark book by Ta-Nehisi Coates, winner of the 2015 National Book Award and written as a letter to Coates’s son, has garnered a huge amount of attention for its unflinching take on the legacy of racism in America. Join Emily Bernard, UVM Professor of English and Critical Race and Ethnic Studies, to discuss the historical and literary context of this work.

Copies of Between the World and Me will be available in advance at ArtsRiot, the Peace & Justice Center, and the Fletcher Free Library.
