review Between the World and Me

Between the World and Me review í 3 “This is your country this is your world this is your body and you must find some way to live within the all of it” In a profound work that pivots from the biggest uestions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son Ta Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation’s history and current crisis Americans have built an empire on the idea of “race” a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of b. Less than an hour ago on 7262015 I finished reading Ta Nehisi Coates book Between the World and Me As I read the last sentence Through the windshield I saw the rain coming down in sheets I was involuntarily overcome with inexplicable yet wholly warranted emotion Oddly tears my tears tears perhaps I had been locking inside my fatherly bravado for a couple decades came down in their own sheets as thoughts of my child my daughter at fourteen years old still having to face the daemonic vulgarities of a world she had no part in building but would be expected to repair came to life The tears came because Coates in a few pages captured exposed unlocked and translated what so many people of color so many frustrated and frightened parents and so many disenfranchised and nomadic youth found so difficult to dictate and explain For them the feelings were there but the words simply would not come I wept because Coates story was my story from my early experiences as a student at Morehouse College the Harvard of the South to the wanderer and discoverer of beauty upon the Parisian landscape to accepting my unexpected role as an English teacher in a tough and directionless Balti City to my exploration and rebirth producing who I am todayLike so many I was immediately taken to the oft uoted extensively analyzed and eternally relevant essay The Fire Next Time written in 1962 by James Baldwin as a letter to his nephew written I suppose for all the nephews in the world to analyze and digest The similarities between Coates and Baldwin were uncanny and certainly intentional as Between the World was written by Coates to his son as if a continuation to Baldwin s last line from The Fire And everywhere there is the anguish of being black in a society that at times seems poised on the brink of total racial war Yes Coates released Between the World and Me several weeks after the unrest in Balti at the urging of his publisher a timely and strategically perfect act and as an expose of tumultuous racial injustice and social chaos headlining the evening news the world over He writes But race is the child of racism not the father Indeed PerhapsThis is a book that must be read and passed on to the youth to read several times over a book for universities and secondary schools to add to their bulging curriculum to produce and encourage meaningful dialogue without blame or bias Between the World and Me is a book that should be discussed over scones and tea and bags of potato chips and shared during drives to grandma s house in the country or the inner city It should be read by all people regardless of color creed nationality or social belief This is a book of substance and timeless relevance It is the book we all know Eagerly and with great expectation I await the next Coates to continue the story between the world and us

Between the World and Me review í 3 T his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences from Howard University to Civil War battlefields from the South Side of Chicago to Paris from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children’s lives were taken as American plunder Beautifully woven from personal narrative reimagined history and fresh emotionally charged reportage Between the World and Me clearly illuminates the past bracingly confronts our present and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward. I thought it was a little fishy that all the reviews on here are these reverent whispery multi starred nods of agreement about how important this book is I mean that just never happens especially with the it book of the moment there are always naysayers and contrarians and people who just don t get what the BFD is Since there s a copy lying around my house I thought I d check it out the season s it book is rarely just 152 pages and about a topic that interests me so I was excited to participate in the cool thing for once after missing out on Fifty Shades of Grey and The Hunger Games and Eat Pray Love and all the rest due to a combination of laziness and snobberyOn some level I was hoping to be the don t believe the hype hater on here but Coates left me disappointed on that front It did take me a little while to get into this but once he got to college I was hooked and couldn t stop even though it was late and I had to get up at 3am to catch a transcontinental flight My main uestion before I read it was What new is there to say I d noticed everyone had their panties all in a twist over this book about being black in America and based on what I d heard I just didn t get what he could ve said that seemed so revelatory and newThe answer is not too much really it s the way that he says it Between the World and Me is an intensely personal book that s rooted in deeply felt lived experience As someone who is horrified by our era s obsession with memoir I am occasionally floored when I see what a personal story can do I recently read an essay online by a woman whose father had committed suicide that made me seriously rethink my antipathy towards memoir and my response to this book was similar So often the recounting of personal experience and private feelings comes off as dull narcissistic and unnecessary but on occasion memoir transcends itself and is able to speak to something much larger than one person s life with an authority that nothing else canIt doesn t need to be said but I ll point out anyway that a lot of this book s success has to do with timing White Americans have been able to ignore a lot of this for a long time but recently that s become almost impossible to do In the past two weeks we ve heard Sandra Bland s traffic stop and watched Samuel DuBose be murdered before our eyes and the trauma of witnessing these things and the rest from the past year has left pretty much everyone looking for answersThis book did partially answer a huge uestion I ve had for years that I m sure a lot of other uninformed white people have but that s too offensive and embarrassing to ask black parents directly which is What do you tell your kids When do you tell them And how do you reassure them that it s going to be alright when as a parent you re supposed to help them feel things will be okay but you re also supposed to be honest and keep them safe This book is constructed as a letter to Coates s fifteen year old son and the reason it s so satisfying is that it does not err on the side of false comfort and remains honestly bleak It also gave me the uncomfortably excited feeling of access to a perspective I ve always wanted to know about but was yeah I ll admit it afraid to askI think pretty often about what makes me an adult and maybe this sounds weird but one of the main things is understanding now what a big deal it is when people die I feel like when I was a kid I didn t uite get that that actually happened and then when I was a teenager I didn t think it was very serious but when I grew up I finally saw that this was it this was huge this was almost the only thing that there was that mattered Between the World and Me s main orientation is corporal it s concerned with what happens to a person s body as ultimately the sole important thing For me this is a helpful way to think about racism I remember one day when I was not so old but not really that young either reading that African American men have much shorter life expectancies than white American men due to health disparities and it was like a light went off and I finally saw what racism was in a different and much truer way than I had before So much discourse about race takes place in these abstract terms that speak about social construction and are preoccupied with the nuance of language and ideas but there is something about a return to the body that blows that away At the end of the day redlining matters because it s created conditions in which black kids are likely than white kids to get hit with a stray bullet while walking to school It sounds foolishly obvious but police brutality and mass incarceration affect people in the most stark and concrete way by ending lives by physically hurting or locking up their bodies Of course there are other reasons why racism is is a problem but Coates s emphasis on the body and his insistence that nothing else matters so much beyond that resonated with meThis is a book that takes our country s sweet language about having a dream and turns it into a bitter mouthful of ashes I m actually surprised it s so popular because I feel we as Americans crave optimism and promises of solutions and Coates offers neither There s a lot of beauty in the world he says and there are great things about being young gifted and black or whatever but he doesn t believe in any moral arc of the universe tilting toward justice or in any of this getting especially better which according to him spoiler alert will be a moot point anyway soon because we ll all be underwaterA short well written timely book that I along with everyone else recommend
