Title: Between the World and Me Literary Guide

Author: Ta-Nehisi Coates

Genre: Memoir

Publication Date: 2015


In Between the World and MeTa-Nehisi Coates skillfully interweaves a sweeping overview of Black life in America over the past four centuries with an autobiographical memoir. He highlights incidents from his youth, education, and career as a freelance writer and journalist, structuring the book as a three-part letter to his adolescent son, Samori. Using vivid imagery and figurative language, Coates dramatizes the scarring effects of political and economic inequality as his anecdotes present an unflinching portrait of white racism. The book won the 2015 National Book Award for nonfiction and promptly secured a place on many students’ required reading lists.
