Between the World and Me with Benton Greene

BTWAM On Demand Learning


Between the World and Me moves from Baltimore’s West Side to Howard University in Washington, D.C., to New York City and to Paris, France addressing along the way what it means to inhabit an African American body in America. Structured in the form of a letter to his teenage son, Ta-Nehisi Coates’ 2015 Award-winning book is a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about race and American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son.
