The Case for Reparations

coatesWriter Ta-Nehisi Coates will present “The Case for Reparations” at Boston College on Apr. 13 at 7 p.m. in the Murray Room of the Yawkey Center. Coates outlined his thesis in a 2014 cover story for The Atlantic. His piece reignited the long-dormant national conversation of just how to repay African Americans for a system of institutional racism. A national correspondent for The Atlantic, Coates is the author of the memoir The Beautiful Struggle: A Father, Two Sons, and an Unlikely Road to Manhood.  He has also written for The Village Voice, Washington City Paper, Time, The Washington Post, the Washington Monthly and O magazine. Sponsor: Office of the Provost and Dean of Faculties.
