Description - The Beautiful Struggle by Ta-Nehisi Coates
'Ta-Nehisi Coates is the young James Joyce of the hip-hop generation' Walter Mosley
Ta-Nehisi Coates grew up in the tumultuous 1980's in Baltimore known, back then, as the murder capital of the United States.
With seven siblings, four mothers, and one highly unconventional father- Paul Coates, a larger-than-life Vietnam Vet, Black Panther, Ta-Nehisi's coming of age story is gripping and lays bare the troubled, often violent life of the inner-city, and the author's experience as a young black person in it.
With candor, Ta-Nehisi Coates details the challenges on the streets and within one's family, especially the eternal struggle for peace between a father and son and the important role family plays in such circumstances.
