Book cover for We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy
Indeed, in America there is a strange and powerful belief that if you stab a black person ten times, the bleeding stops and the healing begins the moment the assailant drops the knife.

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“The most precious thing I had then is the most precious thing I have now—my own curiosity. That is the thing I knew, even in the classroom, they could not take from me. That is the thing that buoyed me and eventually plucked me from the sea.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy

Trevor Noah
“Comfort can be dangerous. Comfort provides a floor but also a ceiling.”
Trevor Noah, Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“It is insufficient to state the obvious of Donald Trump: that he is a white man who would not be president were it not for this fact.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“I did not ask. Later I felt bad about this. I knew, even then, that whenever I nodded along in ignorance, I lost an opportunity, betrayed the wonder in me by privileging the appearance of knowing over the work of finding out.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy

Colson Whitehead
“Perhaps his life might have veered elsewhere if the US government had opened the country to colored advancement like they opened the army. But it was one thing to allow someone to kill for you and another to let him live next door.”
Colson Whitehead, The Nickel Boys
