CSN Between the World and Me by Richard Wright

Coates begins the book with a direct address to his son, Samori. He describes a time when he is speaking on a talk show and is asked to explain what it means to lose his body. Although we commonly think of the American Dream as an innocent pursuit of success and happiness, in reality this Dream cannot be unbound from violence against African Americans. As a result, black people live in a constant state of fear, knowing that their bodies are always at risk of destruction. While the streets pose a threat to the young Coates, he is further constricted by the schools he attends, which seek to discipline black children rather than help them learn and grow. On the other hand, he is able to learn from his father, Paul , who was formerly a local captain of the Black Panther Party and now works as a research librarian at Howard University.
