Join us for a discussion of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ “Between the World and Me,” written as a letter to his teenage son about his experience of growing up as a Black man in the United States. Coates explores growing up in Baltimore, the American Dream, and facing oppression and violence as a result of white supremacy. Let us know you will attend here.

Toni Morrison wrote about the book, “I’ve been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates.”

If you are interested in exploring the issues of racial justice in Chicago through a Jewish lens, this is for you. The Racial Justice Book & Film Series will hold monthly discussions on books and film dealing with race and racism. Request to join our Facebook group here!
