"For Ta-Nehisi Coates, history has always been personal. At every stage of his life, he's sought in his explorations of history answers to the mysteries that surrounded him -- most urgently, why he, and other black people he knew, seemed to live in fear. What were they afraid of? In Tremble for My Country, Coates takes readers along on his journey through America's history of race and its contemporary resonances through a series of awakenings -- moments when he discovered some new truth about our long, tangled history of race, whether through his myth-busting professors at Howard University, a trip to a Civil War battlefield with a rogue historian, a journey to Chicago's South Side to visit aging survivors of 20th century America's 'long war on black people,' or a visit with the mother of a beloved friend who was shot down by the police. In his trademark style -- a mix of lyrical personal narrative, reimagined history, essayistic argument, and reportage -- Coates provides readers a thrillingly illuminating new framework for understanding race: its history, our contemporary dilemma, and where we go from here"--… (mere)

Wow -- I found this collection of texts written for his son very powerful, illuminating, and terrifying. The discussion of racism as the foundation for the American Dream, the reminder that folks who identify as white need to realize that they only think they are white, but that this thinking allows for them to have the Dream without realizing what they and the institutions of this country have done to ensure racism stays at the foundation, and the daily physical encounters of this racism with the fear and powerlessness that goes hand in hand make this a must-read.

I liked the book and felt a lot of shame and anger and sadness while reading it (all good things to feel when reading, I think), but I found it surprisingly slow going for such a short book. Coates really shines when dealing in particulars -- his reflections on his times at Howard and in Paris were especially good, as was the anecdote of his young son being shoved -- and shines less when he waxes more figurative and abstract. I liked that it was framed as a letter to his son. I think my expectations for the book were extremely high and that it fell a little short of my expectations as a whole, which were based purely on hype and so weren't really fair. The book surely inclines me to read more by Coates and by some of the authors he mentions with whose work I am woefully and perhaps tellingly unfamiliar. ( )

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a name that has floated around me for a while now. Often in discussions on Metafilter about racism and America and what it is to be black, or what it is to think yourself white in the US. But I've never really read his work before, so this year's Diversiverse seemed the perfect place to start. And Between the world and me just came out this year to huge amounts of praise, so I ordered it.
It is a heart-rending book.
Told, in letter form, to Coates' teenage son, it is how Coates grew up in America. It is how racism has impacted his life in so many ways. It is how racism is so embedded in American life that to pursue the "American Dream" is to condone, encourage, and collaborate with racism. It is a personal narrative and a sociological text. It is so worth reading. I quoted liberally from it on tumblr, my only problem was picking what to quote. I could have quoted the entire book [ref]this quote about slavery being one person's life not a lesson for others in particular is so important. Along side Mad Max's "We are not things" slogan should be added "We are not here to help you learn"[/ref]. And some passages I just couldn't stop reading in order to quote. Really, I'm going to repeat myself, you should read this book.
Of course not being American there is a certain amount of distance between the book and me. Also, it is a letter to a young male black teenager. I am non of those things. I am not the intended audience. It still speaks to me, so loudly.
And I cannot help but think of how Irish society is also a racist one. Okay, we don't have a huge non-Irish population, and we never enslaved entire races, but look at the Traveller population in Ireland, how is that not racism in action? And yet people will argue about personal responsibility and if they just behaved like settled people they'd be fine. Ignoring completely the fact that non of us live in a vacuum. Personal responsibility is important, but if society is biased against you then, in the grand scheme of things, you have very little choice in life.
But I'm not going to this post about me. That isn't what this book is about. This book is about African-Americans in the United States of America. And it is such a huge book that I really don't understand how Coates fitted it all into 152 pages. And it means that I will certainly be reading his Black Panther when that gets released.If you get the chance to pick up this book, please do so and read it. If you don't get the change, then make the chance. ( )

Easily one of the top 5 books I have ever read. It is the closest I have ever come to understanding what it is like to be a black person in America. His writing is incredible; I was captivated by every word. I recommend this book to everyone. I just can't say enough good things about it! ( )

I loved this. I finished it last week but I wanted to sit with it. My hubby and I listened to It as an audiobook. Afterwards I read it. Pure poetry. ( )

Between the World and Me is, in important ways, a book written toward white Americans, and I say this as one them. White Americans may need to read this book more urgently and carefully than anyone, and their own sons and daughters need to read it as well. This is not to say this is a book about white people, but rather that it is a terrible mistake for anyone to assume that this is just a book about nonwhite people. In the broadest terms Between the World and Me is about the cautious, tortured, but finally optimistic belief that something beyond these categories persists. Implicit in this book’s existence is a conviction that people are fundamentally reachable, perhaps not all of them but enough, that recognition and empathy are within grasp, that words and language are capable of changing people, even if—especially if—those words are not ones people prefer to hear.

In the scant space of barely 160 pages, Atlantic national correspondent Coates (The Beautiful Struggle) has composed an immense, multifaceted work. This is a poet's book, revealing the sensibility of a writer to whom words—exact words—matter....It's also a journalist's book, not only because it speaks so forcefully to issues of grave interest today, but because of its close attention to fact...As a meditation on race in America, haunted by the bodies of black men, women, and children, Coates's compelling, indeed stunning, work is rare in its power to make you want to slow down and read every word. This is a book that will be hailed as a classic of our time.

And one morning while in the woods I stumbled suddenly upon the thing,

Stumbled upon it in a grassy clearing guarded by scaly oaks and elms

And the sooty details of the scene rose, thrusting themselves between the world and me...
