I love a book that is willing to have the hard conversation. This book, written as a letter to his son, is provocative and fierce, an honest look at race in modern America. Ta-Nehisi Coates tears down our idols and tells the truth. It's hard to read at times, but there's also a lot of compassion here. Because it is written to his child, that love is there, that desire to see his son empowered by truth is there. Give this to everyone you know and let's have the conversation. I highly recommend reading this alongside Claudia Rankine's Citizen. [Kenny]
