Livre du mois| Book of the month: Une Colère Noire; Lettre À Mon Fils | Between The World And Me

À propos du livre | About the book:

[FR] Voilà ce qu’il faut que tu saches : en Amérique, la destruction du corps noir est une tradition – un héritage. Je ne voudrais pas que tu te couches dans un rêve. Je voudrais que tu sois un citoyen de ce monde beau et terrible à la fois, un citoyen conscient. J’ai décidé de ne rien te cacher. "Je me suis demandé qui remplirait le vide intellectuel après la mort de James Baldwin. Sans aucun doute, c’est Ta-Nehisi Coates… Une lecture indispensable." - Gallimard Montreal

[ANG] Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates’s attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. Coates shares with his son—and readers—the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children’s lives were taken as American plunder. Beautifully woven from personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage, Between the World and Me clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward. - Amazon.com
