Book Discussion: Between the World and Me (Candid Conversations Wichita)

View all events in: June 2017 | South Central

Ta-Nehisi Coates's book is a heartfelt look at America and its history through the lens of a black man raised in a nation that has systematically devalued people of color. The book is written as a letter to Coates's 15-year-old son to prepare him for the realities and risks of living in America as a person of color. Powerful and hard-hitting, its message is both timely and eye-opening.

Part of Candid Conversations, a city-wide, collaborative series of events in Wichita that looks at how race functions in society and how policing affects minority communities; preserves the voices of Wichita's communities of color; and encourages community members to tell their stories.
