Unfortunately, Ta-Nehisi Coates has cancelled his lecture at the College of Charleston’s TD Arena on October 18th, 2016 due to an unexpected change in his schedule. The Race and Social Justice Initiative team is looking into rescheduling options for a later date and will release another Eventbrite site. This event is postponed until further notice. Please contact Daron Lee Calhoun, II with any questions or concerns:

The Charleston County Public Library’s John L. Dart Library will still host a discussion of Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates on Thursday, October 20th at 6pm.
