A one two punch for the times this weekend. Coates very much a descendant of Baldwin who speaks across the decades to this specific moment of supposed "carnage." I try to imagine his unique accent in my head when I read. "The country's image of the Negro, which hasn't very much to do with the Negro, has never failed to reflect with a kind of frightening accuracy the state of mind of the country." #bhm #tanehisicoates #jamesbaldwin #amreading #amwriting #bookstagram #booksofinstagram
