Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of Between the World and Me, has a list of 13 books that he hopes readers of his book will also read. Coates is a national correspondent for The Atlantic, where he writes about cultural, social and political issues, particularly regarding African Americans. He is also the writer of the current Black Panther series for Marvel Comics launched in 2016.
In 2016, the Beloved Community Staff Team was formed at Unity Church to strengthen and coordinate Unity’s anti-racism and multi-cultural work, and to share the stories of this journey with the wider community. We commit to sharing the struggles, the questions, and the collaborations here at Unity and in the wider world of our faith and city. The current members of the team include Rev. Janne Eller-Isaacs, Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs, Rev. KP Hong, Drew Danielson, Rev. Lisa Friedman, Ahmed Anzaldúa, Pauline Eichten, and Erika Sanders. This article on BLUU will be the first in an ongoing series of reporting out current events and developments in our aspirations to realize the Beloved Community more fully in our lives.
