Ta-Nahisi Coates: People Were Not Slaves, They Were Enslaved | Zeitgeist 2019

In this episode, editor-in-Chief of HuffPost Lydia Polgreen interviews journalist and novelist Ta-Nehisi Coates on the enduring legacy of slavery in the US and the inspiration for his new book, The Water Dancer.

One of America’s most prolific writers on race and culture, Ta-Nehisi Coates just debuted his first novel, The Water Dancer. Already #1 on the NYT Best-seller list, The Water Dancer follows the life of a young boy who was born into slavery. Earlier this year, Coates lobbied congress on the case for reparations. In 2015 he won the National Book Award for Nonfiction and received a "Genius Grant" from the MacArthur Foundation. He has also authored Black Panther graphic novel series.
