Ta-Nahisi Coates Visits Davidson College

On November 16th, writer-activist Ta-Nahisi Coates visited Davidson College to explain how his own experiences of police brutality inspired him to write about modern victims of American racism. His talk focused on how the “presumption of criminality of black people is deeply written into the bones of this country,” and addressed his most recent memoir, Between the World and Me. The talk took place as national discussion over racially-motivated hate crimes, police brutality, and on-campus discrimination continues.
