Book Discussion: Between the World and Me (Candid Conversations Wichita)
June 16, 2017, 7:00 PM CT
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.
