Description

Sankofa Video and Books and the Washington, DC community will host the Washington, DC Launch of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ book, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER: An American Tragedy, celebrating the highly anticipated and timely work of this talented son of the DMV.

"I grew up surrounded by Black books, reared by a father who spent much of his adult life either running a bookstore or a publishing company. I was made, as a writer and as a human, by Black books. Those bookstores that specialize in this literature are sacred. It is, thus, wholly appropriate that I begin my tour with Sankofa." -Ta-Nehisi Coates

We invite you to join us at this important event, Monday, October 9, 2017, at Metropolitan AME Church, to be part of an intimate conversation with renowned journalist Kojo Nnamdi and Ta-Nehisi Coates discussing WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER: An American Tragedy. Doors open at 6pm; the program will begin at 7pm. This is a free event but you are urged to purchase your signed book in advance; Ta-Nehisi will not be signing on site.
