Ta-Nehisi Coates in Conversation: A Post Mid-Term Reflection - Apollo
November 19, 2018 - New York

The Apollo Theater presents Ta-Nehisi Coates and Nikole Hannah-Jones in a discussion about the midterm elections, the state of American politics, and the historical currents that inform our present. "We Were Eight Years In Power" was the lament of Reconstruction-era Black politicians as the American experiment in multiracial democracy ended with the return of white supremacist rule in the South.
