Coates is a national correspondent at The Atlantic and a 2015 recipient of the MacArthur "Genuis" Fellowship. He writes with a bracing honesty about slavery, housing discrimination, the fear and control of black bodies, and the racialized roots of American wealth. Coates' work in The Atlantic, along with responses from The National Review, will be the basis of our inquiries and discussions.
