Between the World and Me

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, 152 pages

Written as a letter to his teenage son, Between the World and Me is Coates' incredibly moving, powerful discussion of race and what it means to be a black man in the United States. This short book has received a lot of attention over the past year or so (and won the National Book Award), and for good reason: this should be required reading, particularly for those of us who have not shared Coates' experiences. A phenomenal book, and one made even more powerful as an audiobook, which Coates reads himself.
