Ta-Nehisi Coates Talks Mass-Incarceration

I occasionally listen to Detroit Today on wdet on my work commute. I discovered this archived episode during my writing break in December and I wanted to share it here with you.

In this talk, Ta-Nehisi Coates talks about racism, police brutality, mass incarceration, reparations and more.

Read Ta-Nehisi’s articles The Black Family In The Age Of Mass Incarceration, and The Case For Reparations.

I’m a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities.

“Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian” is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
