Watch Ta-Nehisi Coates Speak about Race at Sixth & I in Washington, DC
As part of the Washington Ideas Week, writer Ta-Nehisi Coates spoke with Iris Deroeux about his time living in Paris and race relations in France and the United States at the historic Sixth & I Synagogue in Washington, DC on Tuesday, September 27th.
While his writing Black Panther wasn’t much of the discussion (in fact his writing the comic wasn’t mentioned at all in his bio) there was one question from an audience member about an hour into the video which was live streamed by The Atlantic.
It’s well worth the watch even though it doesn’t have much to do with comics (there was a stack of Black Panther Vol. 1 that was selling really well), but it does provide you a lot to think about race relations here and abroad.
