Few writers and public intellectuals command an audience like the one currently following Ta-Nehisi Coates. But long before Coates’ thoughts shaped nationwide conversations about race, justice and the black experience in America, he found his voice as a young writer in local D.C. and in the city where he grew up, Baltimore. We talk with him about how the region shaped him then and how he’s shaping public discourse around race now.
