Ta-Nehisi Coates with Michele Norris, Conversation, 8 April 2015 – Video

Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on April 8, 2015.

Ta-Nehisi Coates, writer, journalist, and educator, is also a senior editor for The Atlantic, where he writes about culture, politics, and social issues. His recent piece titled The Case for Reparations intricately and provocatively traces the history of racism in the United States from slavery to recent examples of housing discrimination. The much-lauded piece set a single-day traffic record for a magazine article on The Atlantic’s web site, and the attention it has garnered has given Coates a greater forum to wrestle with questions of identity — both blackness and whiteness. The event was followed by a talk with Michele Norris.
