An Evening with Ta-Nehisi Coates
Apr 3, 2015

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC This public lecture is co-sponsored with the UW-Madison Center for the Humanities. Ta-Nehisi Coates is one of the most original and perceptive writers in America. With rich emotional depth and a sonar sense of how pop culture, politics, and history shape discussions of diversity, Coates has been called "the young James Joyce of the hip hop generation." His 2014 cover story for The Atlantic on slavery and race, "The Case for Reparations," is one of the most talked-about pieces of nonfiction in recent memory. His Atlantic blog has been named by TIME as one of the 25 Best in the World. Currently working on his first novel, Coates is a national correspondent at The Atlantic and author of the critically-hailed memoir The Beautiful Struggle.
