Discussion of Coates' Between the World and Me

In this moment of facing up to the deep roots of bigotry in our country, many of us are struggling to find how we can do our part in the work of racial healing, right here and right now. One response that is being asked of well-intentioned, good-hearted White allies is to grapple with their own hidden, unacknowledged, “soft” racism. To provide a forum for this exploration in our community, City Lights Bookstore will host a Zoom discussion of the Ta Nehisi Coates 2015 epistle to his son Between the World and Me on Saturday, August 29, at 6 p.m Eastern Time. The discussion will be guided by local author Donna Glee Williams and will be free of charge. To reserve your spot in the online discussion, please contact City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499 or via email to more@citylightsnc.com.
