"Letter to My Son", "The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration", "The Case for Reparations", Politics & Prose Bookstore, Sixth and I Historic Synagogue, Ta-Nehisi Coates, The Atlantic Magazine
I had to look up the word in the title above, but it is quite appropriate.
It is a word that Ta-Nehisi Coates uses frequently in his most recent and lengthy article, The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration in the October 2015 issue of The Atlantic.
This article has certainly expanded my thinking and my understanding about something that is happening in our country but that rarely makes the news.
I am reprinting first the Atlantic’s Editor’s Note that introduces the article and will give you a sense of what will follow if you invest time in reading the Coates’ piece.
(Also, at the end of this Editor’s Note, there is information about two free tickets to see and hear Ta-Nehisi Coates in Washington, DC Oct. 14th.)
