About Ta-Nehisi Coates

Ta-Nehisi Coates covers African-American cultural and political issues in The Atlantic. His 2015 Between the World and Me book won the National Book Award for Nonfiction. He gained attention taking to Twitter to call out liberal magazines, like The New Republic, for being racist, and his Twitter account became the go-to spot for news on racially motivated police shootings. A scholar of the world, Ta-Nehisi educates his 390k followers. He’s redefined black pride, tweeting, “It’s a privilege for me to be black." and “Would never give that back." Ta-Nehisi was also tapped to pen the Black Panther Marvel comic series, A Nation Under Our Feet.
