In her Peabody-award winning public radio show and podcast, On Being, Krista Tippett provides a space for deep and meaningful conversations with profound thinkers of our time. In a live taping of her show at CHF she will interview Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of the acclaimed Between the World and Me, on the occasion of his latest book, We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy, a collection of essays that examine the eight years of the Obama presidency, a dramatic era in politics, activism, and culture that has reshaped this country and its public discourse. As part of On Being's Civil Conversations Project, they will explore issues ranging from the idea of a “post-racial” world to Coates' meticulously constructed case for reparations for slavery.

Member presale for On Being with Krista Tippett and Ta-Nehisi Coates begins Wednesday, August 23 at 10 AM.
