Ta-Nehisi Coates has been called “the young James Joyce of the hip hop generation,” and his recent Atlantic cover story on race-based economic discrimination in American history (“The Case for Reparations”) is one of the most talked-about pieces on the subject.
Considered one of the most original and perceptive voices in black America, Coates will join the Roosevelt community to speak at this fall’s St. Clair Drake Center Lecture Series.
