Program Description

Ta-Nehisi Coates is a writer and social commentator based in Harlem. In addition to his memoir, The Beautiful Struggle, he has written for Time magazine, the Village Voice, and the New York Times, and his blog for the Atlantic is one of the most influential on the internet, covering everything from politics to pop culture to race in America—all this, despite the fact that Coates is a college dropout who grew up in dangerous West Baltimore. Coates credits his success to his passion for writing-- and his parents’ determination. In this conversation with Maria Hinojosa, he talks about the challenges of growing up black and male in America, racism in our society today, and his hopes for his son’s future. This is the last episode of the series.
