Description

Be part of a special One World Big Ideas Night with Chris Jackson and Ta-Nehisi Coates as they discuss Coates’ new book, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER.

The event begins with a panel of upcoming One World authors; Kimberly Drew, Eddie Huang, Quiara Hudes, and Jenna Wortham in conversation about their exciting works-in-progress. The second half of the program features One World publisher Chris Jackson interviewing Ta-Nehisi Coates about his new book, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER, the follow-up to his National Book Award-winning and New York Times best-seller, BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME.

One World is the home of groundbreaking writers, thinkers, activists, and artists. Publishing the boldest, most original work from a diverse group of writers riveting narratives that disrupt the status quoe, challenge the dominant modes of thoughts and give us a new language to understand our past, imagine our future, and see our present in all its complexity.

In WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER, Coates takes us on a personal journey. Part memoir and part polemic, Coates’ new book combines Ta-Nehisi’s award-winning journalism with the more introspective storytelling of BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME to illuminate what the Obama era has taught us about the heart of America and it’s unreconciled history. Coates powerfully examines the threads between the unprecedented election of Barack Obama and the vicious backlash that fueled the election of Donald Trump. He does so through his intimate and revealing perspective—the point of view of a young, black writer who begins his journey in an unemployment office in Harlem and ends it in the Oval Office, interviewing the President of The United States.
