Ta-Nehisi Coates Speaks At Harlem's Schomburg Center [Live Stream]

It's been a massive year, crowning a decade-plus, for author/journalist/activist Ta-Nehisi Coates. Put aside the fact that he landed the comic book world's most coveted gig and that he's now a certified genius. In 2015, Coates is finally getting recognition for being one of the literary realm's sharpest and most visceral writers in the wake of his instantly-adored and deeply-human Between The World And Me. And as a colossal exclamation point upon this game-changing year for Coates, the writer will make a triumphant return to Harlem's Schomburg Center For Research In Black Culture, following a discussion just last week with the center's director Khalil Gibran Muhammadto sit with New York Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones and discuss his recent successes, trials and perhaps even failures, though that last part seems a bit unlikely. But best of all, the entirety of Ta-Nehisi Coates' discussion can be streamed live down below. The talk begins with and introduction from Dr. Khalil Muhammad at 6:40pm, with Coates and Hannah-Jones taking the stage immediately following. So plug-in and tune-in. This is one you won't want to miss. If you've yet to grab your copy of Between The World And Me, you can do so on Amazon today.
