Between the World and Me
The MacArthur Fellowship, colloquially known as the “Genius Grant”, comes with no-strings-attached six-figure stipend. The 2015 Fellows were recently announced, let’s see how many of the artists we have represented in our collection!
We’ll start first with a new book, Between the World and Me, by the journalist and author, and now recipient of a MacArthur grant, Ta-Nehisi Coates.
Presented within the framework a father addressing his son, Coates confronts our country’s history and leads it to our current systems of racial injustice. He shares also from his own experience of living in America and in a black body. According to Toni Morrison, Between the World and Me is “required reading.”
