Staff Reviews

This book changed the way I think about race in America, shining a light onto our dark history--and our dark present, tying it all together. It is also brilliantly written, in calm but angry prose. Between the World and Me, which won the 2015 National Book Award for Nonfictionn, is now also required reading at many high schools and colleges. We highly recommend it!

“Coates writes about fear and its corrosive effects on our culture from a very personal perspective. He persuades us that we need a new way of understanding American history, a new story, and new names for ourselves and others in order for humanity to survive and thrive. Between the World and Me is urgently needed and should be required reading for everyone in America: high school and college students, church group members, business people, and especially all law enforcement and justice department personnel. This is a book I wish did not need to be written, but I am grateful to Coates for having the courage to share his views.”
