Between The World and Me

 

Between The World and Me is a phenomenal book that was transformed into a production by the same name for two nights in NYC and one night at the Kennedy Center in DC. This breathtaking performance was a moment in history I will not forget. With actors and performances reading Coates’ words, you were inspired and disgusted with the reason why he had to write this book to his son. I felt so much awe at the brilliance of the production and feel an incredible duty as an Educator to continue the work of equity and justice.
