Local Washington was the setting for many of writer Ta-Nehisi Coates’ formative experiences. Coates was born and raised in Baltimore, Md., where he grew up with a black nationalist father. He later made his way down to Washington, D.C. as a student at Howard University and later as a writer at the Washington City Paper. We revisit Kojo’s interview with Coates in one of Washington’s most historic black churches to discuss how those experiences, and the election of President Barack Obama, led to his new book “We Were Eight Years In Power.”
- Ta-Nehisi Coates National Correspondent, The Atlantic; Author, "We Were Eight Years In Power," "Between the World and Me," "The Beautiful Struggle." @tanehisicoates
