QUESTIONS FOR TA-NEHISI COATES

I'm going to a talk by Ta-Nehisi Coates tonight in Atlanta. What would you ask him?
  1. What are some of the most marked differences you've noticed between race relations in Paris and urban America?
    I lived in Paris last year so I'm really interested to hear what he'd have to say to this, especially because I read in an article that he hoped he'd be perceived as American first, black second while living Paris.
  2. Does this audience look like Atlanta to you?
    Predicting the audience will be majority middle to upper class whites. Atlanta is the nation's fourth largest black-majority city.
  3. What are you reading?
