Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates will return home to Baltimore on Monday to address Loyola University’s Martin Luther King, Jr., convocation.
Coates, who writes about race relations and fault lines within the black community for The Atlantic, sparked a national debate in June with his story about “The Case for Reparations,” which gave voice to the long-standing idea that descendants of slaves should receive compensation. He’ll address the topic during the talk through the lens of aspects of African Americans treatment in America since slavery and housing policy, among other viewpoints.
The lecture is set to be held at 5 p.m. at Loyola’s McGuire Hall. To attend, reserve a seat at this website.
