This month's selection:
Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Book summary: Coates takes readers along on his journey through America's history of race and its contemporary resonances through a series of awakenings moments when he discovered some new truth about our long, tangled history of race, whether through his myth-busting professors at Howard University, a trip to a Civil War battlefield with a rogue historian, a journey to Chicago's South Side to visit aging survivors of 20th century America's 'long war on black people,' or a visit with the mother of a beloved friend who was shot down by the police.
