"Between the World and Me", based on Ta-Nehisi Coates' #1 New York Times bestselling account, is coming to HBO as a special event.

First published in 2015, "Between the World and Me" was written as a letter to Coates' teenage son, and recounts the author's experiences growing up in Baltimore's inner city and his growing fear of daily violence against the Black community. The narrative explores Coates' bold notion that American society structurally supports white supremacy.

Based on the 2018 adaptation and staging of the book at the Apollo Theater, the HBO Special will combine elements of the Apollo's production, including powerful readings from Coates' book, and incorporate documentary footage from the actors' home life, archival footage, and animation.
