Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Non-Fiction suggested by Terry

National Book Award, Named one of 10 Best Books of the Year by Publishers Weekly. Written as a message, a warning even, by Ta-Nehisi Coates to his teenage son as to what to expect in life – from the street, from the police, from the world. It is, in short, a sketch (150 pages long) of what it is to be black and American today.(Guardian)
