First published in 2015, Between The World And Me was written as a letter to Ta-Nehisi Coates' teenage son, and recounts the author's experiences growing up in Baltimore's inner city and his growing fear of daily violence against the Black community. The narrative explores Coates' bold notion that American society structurally supports white supremacy.Based on the 2018 adaptation and staging of the book at the Apollo Theater, this HBO Special combines elements of the Apollo's production, including powerful readings from Coates' book, and incorporates documentary footage from the actors' home life, archival footage, and animation
