Overview

Ta-Nehisi Coates' debut is an infectious, reflective memoir—a lyrical saga of surviving the crack-stricken streets of Baltimore in the '80s. Son of Vietnam vet and black awareness advocate Paul Coates—a poor man who set out to publish lost classics of black history—Ta- Nehisi drifts toward salvation at Howard University, while his ominous brother Big Bill finds his own rhythm hustling.
