Between The World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates (44/52)

Wow! This is one of the best books I’ve read in years. It is brilliant and powerful. Written with beauty and horror, Coates delivers a searing take on the reality of being black in America. His arguments are thoughtful and articulate, precise and damning. “I think the Dreamers of today would rather live white than live free.” “So you must wake up every morning knowing that no promise is unbreakable, least of all the promise of waking up at all. This is not despair. There are the preferences of the universe itself: verbs over nouns, actions over states, struggle over hope.” Wow!
