  1. I’m in the process of reading this book and I can understand why Toni Morrison compared his writing to that of James Baldwin. As a fan of many of his op-ed pieces, Mr. Coates has always done an exceptional job in my humble opinion when explaining and giving new life to marginalized or hot button issues. He’s soaring and If he continues to write; he, too, may win the Pulitzer.

  2. I’m a great admirer of his work too, Carolyn. And I agree that his writing brings a clarity to controversial issues that folks tend to avoid. His piece on reparations rocked the nation by placing it front and center in the public discourse and domain. It is an amazing journalistic achievement at a time when most of the media never fails to underwhelm. I look forward to whatever comes next form Mr. Coates.
