An Evening with Ta-Nehisi Coates

With Lateefah Simon

Join us for a conversation with one of the most influential black intellectuals of his generation, Ta-Nehisi Coates. “The Case for Reparations,” his George Polk Award-winning cover story on slavery and race for The Atlantic, was one of the most talked-about pieces of nonfiction in recent memory. Between the World and Me, an exploration of racial history written to his young son, was awarded the National Book Award and hailed by Toni Morrison as “required reading.” Coates is also the author of The Beautiful Struggle, a memoir of growing up in Baltimore during the age of crack, the Marvel comic book series Black Panther and Captain America and the essay collection We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy, Coates’ response to the 2016 presidential election and its ramifications on American society. Coates appears in conversation with Lateefah Simon, President of Akonadi Foundation.

Made possible through the generous support of The Jenerosity Foundation.

Bryan Stevenson: “America’s young Nelson Mandela.”

Bryan Stevenson: “America’s young Nelson Mandela.”

Bryan Stevenson is one of the country's most visionary legal thinkers and social justice advocates. A MacArthur fellow, he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a law practice dedicated to defending some of America’s most rejected and marginalized people. A founding leader of the movement against mass incarceration in the United States, he recently served on President Obama's task force on 21st-century policing. His memoir, Just Mercy, is the story of a young lawyer fighting on the frontlines of a country in thrall to extreme punishments and careless justice. It is an inspiring story of unbreakable humanity in the most desperate circumstances, and a powerful indictment of our broken justice system and the twisted values that allow it to continue.

Stevenson has received numerous awards including the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Grant and the NAACP Image Award for Best Non-Fiction, and was named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People for 2015. He is a tenured law professor at New York University School of Law.

(Bryan Stevenson is) “America’s young Nelson Mandela.”
– Nobel Laureate Desmond Tutu
