This is one of those books everyone must read...

With today's interest in race relations in the USA, this book should be everyone's first pick. A letter written from a Black father to his fifteen year old son, Between the World and Me discusses the struggles of growing up Black in Baltimore, attending Howard, and existing in America as a Black man. A quick read, this book is essential to a healthy understanding of racism in America, and is a great choice for anyone interested in growing beyond their racist misconceptions.


Shocking, beautiful, moving, inspiring--so many emotions were felt throughout this book, it is a must read for all humans, especially those residing in the U.S.

Amazing Book.

Not a professional reviewer but I related so much with this book. I think I was in a place of comfort in my own life and scared of growth, but this book helped take the chains off. The beautiful struggle was equally just as good.
